I feel a bit of a fraud! I joined the PA group thinking that I might be B12 deficient, but having persuaded the doc to test it turns out my B12, and folate, is really quite high.
I have not been supplementing with B12 because I wanted to see what my base level was. I also thought I wasn't supplementing folate, but now that I look carefully at the supplements Dr O gave me for adrenal fatigue I see that one does contain folate - in about the same amount as you find in the average folate supplement.
Should I be worried? Key results below - I typed it all into a neat table, but that hasn't pasted in properly!
Serum TSH<.01mlU/L<.30-5.00>Not uncommon to be suppressed with natural thyroid
Serum free T411.4pmol/L<12.00-22.00>Low.
FT34.2pmol/L<3.20-6.8>I generally feel well when my FT3 is at the top of the range, so this is a bit low for me
Serum folate>20ug/L<4.6-18.70>They have flagged this. I am surprised - my diet is good but not perfect by any means. However I assume there is no cause for concern. There is some folate/folic acid in a couple of the supplements you gave me
Serum ferritin127/ug/L<15-300>Ideally would probably be a bit higher. Other red blood cell readings and Hb are at the bottom end of the ranges
Serum Vit B121347 ng/L<180-700>
