I was diagnosed with Hashimotos a couple of months ago and now on levothyroxine. Whilst the GP is monitoring my levels of thyroid, they haven't bothered with other blood tests. I am extremely tired and very much on waking, i find it almost impossible to wake up! I know it might be adrenal issues and i am trying to address that problem, but I decided to pay for some private blood test which showed my iron levels are quite high 32.0 (6.6-30.4), but my ferritin seems quite low 38.5 (5-148). From reading on here I understand it needs to be at least 70 for thyroid conversion. What I would like to know is, can I raise my ferritin without raising my blood iron? What iron is best to raise ferritin levels? Would this be a reason why I am so tired? or would that not be the reason as my actual iron is high. i have read Stop the thyroid madness website but it doesn't actually answer these exact questions. Any help please.
