Blood results help please


Hi- I have posted all my previous results on thyroid uk, I have numerous longstanding symptoms such as exhaustion, headaches, anxiety, ibs, skin problems.

My serum b12 came back as 228 so I had active b12 done privately which came back as 47.

My thyroid results are below. I’m unsure whether I should go on and have MMA tested- I can’t really afford more private blood tests!

Any advice welcome on trying to pin down why I always feel like crap!

So your Active B12 is almost double the bottom of the range. I doubt any doctor will think B12 is a problem.

However, your haemaglobin and ferritin are both low, suggesting iron-deficiency anaemia. That could account for some of your symptoms.
