    Abnormal blood work. Cause for concern?

    About 2-3 years ago I was constantly sick but didn’t know why. Just didn’t feel well, rapid heartbeat, dizziness, etc,etc. would feel like I had the flu every month for a couple years. I feel a lot healthier these days due to diet, exercise and supplements but my blood work is still not normal. Is it any cause to worry? My doctor said to see her for more blood work in a year. This is what is abnormal:

    1. DHEA- 292 mcg/dL (normal is 23-266) I got this tested a year ago and it was 268 so it’s slowly going up (I’m a 35 y/o female)
    2. Thyroid peroxidase- 60 IU/mL (normal is less than 9)
    3. Thyroglobulin antibody- 2IU/mL (normal is less than or equal to 1)
    4. I also have enlarged red blood cells but no iron, B12, or folate deficiency so they don’t know why my red blood cells are enlarged.
    5. High iron and iron saturation %

    I tested ANA positive for lupus and have seen a rheumatologist and besides hair loss I don’t have any of the symptoms so they said I don’t have lupus. My mom and sister both have really bad rheum
    Everything else in my blood work is normal (glucose, cholesterol, white blood cells, etc) any thoughts? I would appreciate it. I feel like something is not quite right but every doctor I go to doesn’t seem concerned.
