I have recently been diagnosed with Hashimoto's disease and have discovered through the amazing advice of the members on Thyroid UK that I am severely deficient in vitamin D. I have now been prescribed a loading dose so this is getting sorted.
In terms of my vitamin B12/ferritin/folate levels, a few of the members were slightly concerned that my levels were on the low side even though my doctor said they were in range. I have been on a website that they sent me regarding symptoms of vitamin B12 deficiency and I have loads of the symptoms on there so they suggested that I come on here and get your advice. from what I have read, guidelines are different for different ages. I am 41 and please see below my results - any thoughts and advice whether I need a supplement would be much appreciated as I am trying to get my health much better again.
B12 452ng/L (211 - 911)
Ferritin 143 ug/L (10-291)
Folate 2.9ug/L (3-14.4)
Other results if needed:
Vit D 14.4 nmol/L (<30 indicates deficiancy)
Serum total bilirubin level 13 umol/L (<21)
Serum alkaline phosphatase level 87 iu/L (30-130)
Serum alanine aminotransferase level 128 (<40)
Serum calcium level 2.23 (2.2 - 2.6)
Serum albumin level 45 g/L (35-50)
Serum adjusted calcium concentration 2.13 mmol/L (2.2-2.6)
Serum inorganic phosphate level 0.82mmol/L (0.8-1.5)
Thanks in advance for your help!
