Haemoglobin A1c level 37 mmol/mol (19-48) There is a note about change of units so I am assuming this equates to result at top of list.

Serum ferritin levels 120 ng/ml (30 - 400) Ferritin may be elevated due to inflammatory response and thereforenot reflect iron stores.

I have been taking Levo for well over 20 years, current dose 100 mcg 4 days a week, 125 mcg 3 days a week and feel toxic as well as many other hypo signs. Have also been put of Vit D and have finished booster dose of 20,000 IU once a week and have been on maintenance dose since beginning of September of 2x 400IU a day. I understand a test was requested, may be not back ye. Does it take longer?
Have just found another GP at my surgery wants to help me and so we will work together on getting me well. This is very good news for me so I suggested we looked at vitamins and minerals and this is phase one. my previous Vit D result before treatment was 27. I said I should like to get minerals and vitamins up to optimum levels then see if that helps absorption and then see about tweaking thyroid meds but I feel I have to set any aims etc at my appointment on Wednesday as I may not get a chance again. This GP is on a learning curve so I have to set my stall out correctly.
Any comments, suggestions most gratefully received!
