I've hopped over here from the ThyroidUK forum on Healthunlocked as I recently had a vitamin B test and would like to ask you about it.
Recently I'd been taking an Adrenal supplement which I found immediately reduced the severity of my anxiety. I looked at the label and it had high doses of vitamin B. So I tried a high dose of vitamin B complex tablet instead (from local health food shop) and it had the same effect.
Roughly 10 days after I started taking any vitamin B I had a vitamin B test from my endocrinologist and it came back as 261 out of a range of 180 - 2000.
So, before I took the high dose vitamin B I must have been lower than that. Someone on my thyroid forum said you should be at least 500.
Since I found out the test came back as 261 I've started taking another vit B pill before bed and it's helped anxiety at night time.
What do you think? Should I just keep taking these over the counter tablets? What level of vitamin B is optimal?
Extra info: I'm on thyroid medication, not yet stable, still lots of tiredness and I'm trying very hard to get well as soon as possible so I can work again.
Thanks for any help x
