Could someone please comment on my Iron, Ferritin, B12 and Folate


I posted yesterday about my recent blood results and have received some great replies regarding my thyroid levels and dose. Currently taking 100mcg/125mcg levo alternatively TSH 0.10 range 0.35 - 4.7

T4 14 range 7.8 - 21.0

Could someone please comment on my other results below

Iron 16 range 8 - 34

Ferritin 65 range 15 - 300

B12 394 range 180 - 1130

Folate 9 no range given buts says <3 indicates deficiency

I know my B12 is lowish and Ferritin should be around 80 but I do not know if the iron level is alright.

Can someone please advise on this and if I should supplement and which one is best.

Does folate look O.K. or would this be better higher.

Any advice greatly appreciated.

Many thanks browny

  • Hi

    Thanks for replying, your Ferritin is really low.

    My daughter had it that low and with supplements only got it up to 12, but she is not hypo.

    I don't think she seems to be absorbing it.

    she has ceoliac disease and it on a strict gluten free diet but her ferritin still remains low.

    Do you mind me asking what you take for yours.

    I know compared to you and my daughter mine is good but it has dropped from 88 to 65

    Thank you for wishing me luck, same to you.

  • I presume its due to hashi's my vit D was low too but just within the normal now,ferrtin has been 6.9 and going down since diagnosed almost 3 yes ago I had a TSH greater than 125 T4 nil ,I had a myeodeoma crisis I take ferrograd C but will have to get on to doc cause it getting worse
