I had a thyroid blood test because my mother was being investigated for thyroid problems. Everything looked fine, except a ferritin level of 400.I followed up with an iron panel and, again, everything fine, except a ferritin level of 475.
Talked to my GP about it and they refuse to do anything (Not even a blood test) because I admitted to drinking a couple of glasses of wine with my dinner every day.
I quit alcohol immediately - two weeks ago.
Happy to stay off the wine for the foreseeable, if there is a reason for it. But how can I tell if there is any “Improvement” if I don’t know the actual problem, or the scale of it, to start with?
