Hello all I am new here
I am hoping for some help, I am currently on b12 injections and taking 5mg folic acid daily along with vitC vitD.
I have had many tests which is stating my Hematocrit is high and I really don't understand why, my ferritin is low in range being 39, I have hashimotto's but not currently on anything, I am currently changing my diet to see if that helps my symptoms of hashimotto's.
Since being on the b12 I have felt anemic again but am worried to take iron as my hematocrit is high, I heard being dehydrated could play a key but how dehydrated would you have to be for this to happen?, I drink plenty of water.
My ferritin always shows low in range and I have had many tests that also shows my MCHC to be low while my MCV is always at the top, I have also had low folate.
Any advice would be much appreciate...
