I had a great a great app with endo.
He will write to my GP to prescribe iron and b12 supplements, based on recent tests.
He had prepared a plan for me a few weeks before I came, when I contacted him to inform him how unwell I felt, despite my numbers being ok ( to put me on different medication, which he said he would tell me about now at my next app). due to b 12 and recently getting shingles, he changed the plan. I am now doing I short synacthen test in a few weeks (once totally recovered from) shingles . If that comes back fine, he said he will change my meds and if m not if will decide with me next steps.
All sounded good to me. I left happy. I hope this is of use to you guys.
Sorry if not written well. Very hard to be clear at the moment.

Good morning guys,
I would be grateful for your advice once again. I recently posted here about private b 12 results which were 104 (140-724.
my original post is down below in brackets, to which I received very helpful advice form this group.
I have now received the results of my blood tests from my GP. pic attached Both tests were taken within 1 week of each other. The I've not made an appointment with GP yet to discuss, but a note was left on the system alongside the results to say they were fine and no further action. I still feel terrible as per my post below.
At 8.45 this morning I'm seeing my thyroid endo. he made me an urgent app due to my symptoms. I suspect he may reduce levo. But I feel until I don't take b 12, I should not tamper with levo.
Please advise me urgently. I'd be super grateful for my help. Thanks so so much.w
I've been kindly directed here by admin from thyroid UK.
I would be super grateful for your interpretation of my b 12 and iron results.
I have a diagnosed under active thyroid for which I'm taking 175mcg Levothyroxine. I currently feel fatigued, body aches, joints ache,left leg shooting pains (feels like nerve), cold hands and feet and weight gain of 1 stone(despite super healthy diet).
My dose of Levo has increased a few times recently. I usually feel better for 6 weeks and then come crashing down)
Any advice would be gratefully accepted.
