I've recently had results of Vit D 173, ferritin 10 and TSH 0.5, FT4 22.6, FT3 3.0
I had an iron infusion on Tuesday. Endo (& resp cons) have both said continue with Vit D (at 7500iu/day) and are asking GP to prescribe Vit D only capsules (I can't tolerate calcium)(I've been purchasing my own so far), and endo is recommending reduding T4 to 50mcg/day (currently 75mcg) but adding in 10mcg T3.
I'm reasonably happy with these suggestions at present. Does anyone have any observations/advice to offer?
I am wondering what the relationships are between ferritin (HB was fine), vit D and thyroid. Are there causal relationships? If so, which is chicken and which is egg?
Should I expect adjusting the thyroid meds to correct the low ferritin? Should I expect to constantly need occasional iron infusions?
etc etc etc
All 'expert' advice gratefully received.
I also have Sjogren's and Hughes.
