Hello. I've just had back my results for Ferritin, Vit D, B12 and Folate. The B12 and Folate seem OK. The Ferritin is 69, with normal range as 15-300, and I thought I saw someone post on here the other day that if Ferritin is under 70 then levothyroxine doesn't convert? The Vit D was 24 with normal range 25-49. I've been told I need to speak to the GP about the Vit D levels, but nothing else. I was also tested for coeliac disease, and result for that was normal. Unfortunately the results were scanned into my GPs online system, but they didn't manage to scan the whole page so I can't read fully, The coeliac test result says Anti Tissue Transglutaminase = <1.23 and coeliac screen as 'negative'. There doesn't seem to be a range.
My July results for TSH was 1.64 (range 0.3-5) and Free T4 15.8 (range 8.8-18.8) (I'd previously been at TSH 7.8 and Free T4 17.1 for quite a long time and my levels fluctuate quite a lot, I often have to change dose of levothyroxine - I'm currently on 150mg daily, but sometimes changes down to 125mg daily).
I've previously had really good advice which is why I went for the above tests. I've yet to broach the subject of a test for T3 with my GP. Does anyone think a vitamin D supplement is really going to make much difference? I've read up on symptoms of Vit D deficiency but can't say I think they really cover all my numerous symptoms, which are similar to nearly everyone else on here - weight gain, swollen tongue, joint pain that moves around, extreme fatigue and mental fog to name just the top few.
Really appreciate any comments on what to do next. Thank you for ready this
