I don't understand the Pituitary Gland's part in all of this but my brain is working at half power. I've had no thyroid for many years and have only been given levothyroxin. My latest tests come up ferritin 17uglL, B12 71500uglL and Folate 12.3uglL.
I've taken in the point about antibodies still attacking certain proteins and realise that is why I have pernicious anaemia. I've cut out gluten and it makes a huge difference to energy until I have another allergic reaction and then I'm sooo tired. I've tested positive to many things even a chemical only found in water towers (!) but I'm really sensitive in some of my senses as well- heightened sense of smell, touch. I can smell the smallest amount of chemicals and in this world where people cover themselves in products and the water stinks of chlorine/fluoride that's no fun. My skin is also wrecked and scarred from continual attacks and then using steroid cream.
I'm a vegetarian on a very healthy diet (loads of raw and cooked veg and a wide range of healthy fats with probably too much fruit sugar) and have given up gluten completely but I'm seeing a nutritionist who I know, will recommend me eating a little fish which I don't think I can make myself do. If I have to give up dairy as well that's half my protein gone though I do eat eggs, beans, soya and nuts. Obviously can't eat quorn as it contains gluten.
Can anyone explain in simple terms what other tests I should have done and why, and if its possible , with the PA problem, to get rid of the antibodies that are causing my allergy problems.
With hope but tiredly
