Shame the endo does not recognise ferritin is still too low

the flu like feeling could well be the antibody attacks of hashimotos


Hi Maff08

I assume your blood tests are from before your levo was increased, so it will take about six weeks till you get your next blood test which, hopefully, will show a much lower TSH.

As well as the supplements Endo has suggested, these are some more which are helpful especially Vitamin E as this helps all glands, not just thyroid. Your supplements should be taken 4 hours apart from levo, except for calcium and iron, which I would leave a much longer gap (maybe 12 hours) as iron can bind with levo.

I take levo around 5.30 in morning & vitamins after dinner around 8 ish.... Not been told what type of thyroid issue i have.
