I am writing to surgery to request my medical records. Surgery website asks for information pertaining to your ID but also the time frame you require .
Can I not ask for my complete medical records?
Im tryin to figure out how far back I have been low in b12 and iron or any link.
I have some bloods results from 2008 showing low ferritin 29ug/L (20-400) and b12 161 ngL (160-1000) folate 8.1ug/L (>3.0). I also have letter from GP mentioning the low level and that an antinuclear antibody test was also weakly positive. he suggested I repeat of the antibody to check celiac which returned again at weakly positive. Nothing was done!. I was on a therapuetic trial of thyroxine because of symptoms and my results were borderline. This didnt have much effect so it was stopped after about 18 months I thimk. No one attributed theses symptoms to low b12 and ferritin.
I disticntly remember being iron deficient in pregnancy and both iron and b12 during and after my third, but those three children are now in their thirties! (Ive had two more since).
Is this too far back to request?
Has anyone else requested their medical records? Did you ask for all or just a time line?
Thanks in advance.
