I have been recommended by a fellow member in the thyroid group to find out some more information about pernicious Anaemia and to ask you kindly for your advice following my blood results as to whether it might be the case?
Abit of background: I am a 35 yr old female (no previous medical conditions) who has two little ones under two my last baby born 6 months ago. Since my last baby was born I have been feeling pretty bad with light headedness, fatigue, foggy brain, pain in joints (particularly hands) pins and needles.
GP did some blood tests and I am hypothyroid with hashimos (anti bodies were in 500s) I am also very low in ferritin (5) last checked 6 weeks ago which I am currently taking two 200mg ferrous sulphate tablets for a day. My haemaglobin levels were borderline at 11.6
I have started lyvothyroxine (3 days ago) for thyroid at lowest dose 25umg to be tested in 6 weeks time.
I also had some vit tests completed last week and although within range (therefore GP not concerned) they are lower end so feel maybe this might be contributing to some of my symptoms?
Folate was 3.3 (abnormal range starts below 3.1)
B12 was 205 (abnormal range below 187)
I was not tested for vit D and since reading about hashimos will probably get this done privately.
Do you think my blood results could be pernicious Anaemia? Should I mention it to my GP?
I would really like to supplement my b12 and folate please could somebody advise how I could do this myself?
Thank you so much for your time if you have read his far!
