Hi me again. Sorry for all the posts but I keep on thinking of questions I hadn't asked - my brain seems to be very sieve-like lately! I'm currently on dose 3 of 6 B12 injections as a trial to see if there's an improvement in my symptoms as B12 was low end of range (215 in a range of 147-840) My ferritin and folate was towards lower end of range. Doctor says folate normal (level is 6.8 in a range of 3.1-19.9) and ferritin was 42 (range 11-307) so no need to supplement but all advice on here is that my folate and ferritin is too low and is needed for the injections to work effectively. My question is what folate and/or iron supplements would you recommend and where would you get them please? My iron levels seem to be ok it's just the ferritin that seems to be on the lower end of the range. Also would taking these supplements adversely affect any tests for Thyroid T3 levels and antibodies as I am considering having these checked privately as because my levels of TSH and T4 were in range they won't test for them routinely. Thanks in advance for any info
