Looking for some advice please and was directed here by someone on Thyroid Unlocked. My 12 year old was diagnosed with an underactive thyroid. We were growing more and more concerned she was undermedicated but bloods by our GP in July indicated (according to their range) she was within range. (3.38 tsh range0.35-5 mU/L. Disagreeing, we did some private bloods with Blue Horizon this week and they came back with an increased TSH amongst other things, off both the Blue Horizon and the GP's scale at 7.24.
She is showing deficiencies in folate, B12 (borderline) and Vit D.
B12 256 (pg/ml 197-771)
Folate 2.2 (ug/L > 2.9)
Ferretin 34 (ug/L 13 - 150)
C Reactive protein 0.9 (mg/L <5.0)
25 OH vit D 38 (NMOL/l 50 - 200)
Background: There's a strong history of thyroid issues in my family. I don't seem to have anything but I do have ME/fibromyalgia and my dad has Crohns. Results for me a good number of years ago were inconclusive about a B12 deficiency which couldn't be corrected with oral supplements so I started with B12 injections. They are every 3 months and do make a difference to how I feel. Every 3 months isn't enough though.
Looking for any advice or suggestions for my daughter with regards to the B12 as we head back to the GP, hopefully not to do battle.
