I was recommended to put a post on here by the lovely people on the Thyroid UK.
I had a blood sample last month due to extreme tiredness, occasional slurring of speech and numbness in my face/twitching, memory problems, sometime my joints are extremely stiff which worsen with exercise and ocassional a wry neck. I also occasional get extremely itchy and have has a long standing tooth abscess which is currently under treatment and have geographic tongue.
My results are as follows:
Adjusted Calcium : 2.15 (range 2.2 - 2.6)
Iron Saturation: 14 (range 15-45)
Vit B12: 132 (range 211-911)
Folate 2.5 (range >4.0)
My Dr told me I was anaemic and this would explain all the symptoms but told me just to increase my lacking vitamins via diet such as nutrition yeast/greens and to be re-tested in 3 month. In the mean time I am still exhausted and wondering if diet can help or if I should push for a more urgent treatment?
Thank in advance.
