Hi I have been recommended to join this forum from Thyroid UK to enquire my B12 and folate results. I have had low ferritin for very many years.
FERRITIN 14 (15 - 150)
FOLATE 2.1 (2.5 - 19.5)
VITAMIN B12 196 (180 - 900)
TOTAL 25 OH VITAMIN D 45.8 (>75 ADEQUATE VITAMIN D)
I was diagnosed with clinical depression and iron deficiency and B vitamin deficiency at around about the same time as my low thyroid.
My GP gave me an antidepressant called Zoloft and sent me away. I do have some physical symptoms as well like constipation and feeling cold and looking washed out all the time but the doctors have put me back onto an antidepressant called Fluoxetine because I suffered from such bad tiredness and dizziness and brain fog that I couldn't concentrate and it cost me my job. When I was last at the doctor she insisted my problems were all in my head and so she referred me to Positive Steps. Thanks for reading and comments.
