I was diagnosed with hashimoto's just recently and on 50mcg Levo. My vitamin levels are within range but on the lower side. My doctor isn't concerned but I wondered if anyone has any advice?
Im just starting to supplement with jarrows b12 sublingual 1000mg which I'm cutting in half and possibly up it it in a week or so depending how I get on. I'm slowly introducing supplements (taking for 2 weeks then introducing another) I have ingennus super b complex to take alongside b12.
I also plan to supplement vit D with k2 and magnesium and spatone with vit c.
I guess my question is should I push for further testing or is self supplenting enough? I have been really unwell and was barely eating due to anxiety and no appetite. Could my low b12 be malnutrition and/or hashimoto's and gut issues related? I do have some b12 defiency symptoms but with my thyroid and possible adrenal issues it's difficult to pin point what is what. As I said my doctor isn't concerned and I'm not sure she'd agree to further tests as I'm 'within range'
As I'm new here I'm not sure what test results you require to be able to advise. So have added what I think, so apologies if any are irrelevant. Ive added vitamins and a full blood count. Any advice appreciated.
