Had more bloods done

Right i had a load of blood tests will post in the morning but what i can see for myself so far my gfr as dropped from 81 to 75 in 9 months . My b12 as also dropped from 232 to 224 even though i was taking b12 100mg everyday for months ,6 months since last test. had my white blood count done 3 times and each time its dropped lower but still in range . Range is (4.0-11.0) tests was 7.6 then 7.1 now 6.1 also my neutrophil count has dropped each time 5.1, 4.3,3.8 (1.7- 7.5). They didn.t test my iron or my vit d again even though low last time so seeing doctor for more bloods on tuesday. There are some i don.t understand cause no ranges have been put on there . When posted someone might have a idea of other tests x

Of course, two of the important tests and they omit them. Are you looking for specific reasons. I can tell you that your B12 appears very low for people who have Hashimoto. The average sublingual taken is 1000 to 2000 of methylcobalim. I don't know what you are looking for with your blood cell tests but I'll post the optimal levels for hypothyroidism and at the very bottom of all of it there will be a link for Dr. Kaslow and he shows the good ranges for other bloods.


Thanks was looking at what the blood tests means to me are they a concern for hashi.s and should i be worried doctor don.t seem to be not posted my full results yet as a banging headache and full of a cold


Well, for thyroid, they test for TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) which is a pituitary test which will raise if it sees problems with your T3 and T4 level. The free T3 and free T4 tests will give you an idea of what is going on with thyroid production and conversion. For Hashimoto, they would add antibody tests for TPO and TH.

Take care of yourself. If your vitamin D was higher, you might not have caught that cold:)


Hi thyroid levels are ok have been diagnosed with hashi.s for 9 months was on vit d but they never tested them to check how i am
