my ferritin was 13 (10-211)
i was described ferritin fumerate 2x 210mg a day in March 2013.
had a retest last week, level is now 42. Same range.
is this a suitable increase? I have seen the GP today and she said she expected it to higher.
i have (quiet) Crohn's disease and she said to mention it at my next IBD appointment as I may need iron infusions.
oh and my doctor also said that I might have ME not hypothyroidism. I did mention my under range T4 (again!) and she said its never been high, highest recorded level is 14.6 (10-20) and I said we'll I've never had my thyroid tested when I am well and optimal health so how can we keep comparing blood levels that are taken when I'm unwell ? Surely that doesn't make any sense? She went quiet, couldn't answer and agreed they were all levels taken when I am/was unwell. So just said, well lets see what dr skinner has to say at my appointment, if he says its not thyroid I will believe him.
