Hi there, I have come from the Thyroid Uk site, after suffering with symptoms of exhaustion, excessive thirst, brain fog (I can forget what I'm saying as I'm speaking), dry itchy skin...eyes and everywhere else!, mood swings, foot cramps at night, blurred vision (I have to blink lots to restore clarity).... for over 10 months. My gp arranged a blood test in August '14 but as they all came back in range nothing happened. I went back to the Gp early Feb '15 to be told (without even listening to my symptoms) that as my bloods were all 'normal', I'd just have to live with it. Well I've not given up yet and I'm determined to get to the bottom of it with or without a GP!!
I've posted my results below and ask your advice. It was suggested by Thyroid UK members that the VitB12, ferritin and folate were all too low really and ought to be supplemented.
I am seeing a different Gp this afternoon and was going to ask what his opinion of the results are but I'm not holding much hope. They were all useless what I had viral thyroiditis a couple of years ago, kept telling me my symptoms were all in my head when in fact I was massively hyperthyroid....duh!
First results from 11/08/14 second from 20/02/15 range in brackets.
Serum Vit b 12 - 327 220 (115-1000)
Ferritin - 23 33 (15-300)
Foliate - 11.4 4.4 (<3 deficient )
Glucose - 6.1 (3.6-6.0) ignored coz not fasting. not done second time.
HbA1c - 32 31
No Vit d results.
Thanks in advance
BTW I am 33 y/o female on asthma medications and nothing else
