My B12, Vit D are in good/high range but iron level readings in:
Serum iron level: 15 umol/L (6.60-26.00umol/L
Serum TIBC: 70 umol/L (40.80-76.60umol/L)
Serum ferritin: 36ug/l (13.00 – 150.00ug/l)
Readings at present after supplementing with 210mg ferrous fumerate and vit c 1000mg a day for approx 3 months:
Serum iron level: 12 umol/L (6.60-26.00umol/L
Serum TIBC: 58 umol/L (40.80-76.60umol/L)
Serum ferritin: 251 ug/l (13.00 – 150.00ug/l)
So does this mean that I am not utilising thyroxine from NDT I'm taking?
Any comments much appreciated : )

I also had a test for: Thyroglobulin 8.6 ug/L
(Laboratory statement: Thyroglobulin is only useful in patients who have had a complete thyroidectomy for previous thyroid cancer. If this patient has not had a complete thyroidectomy then this result is uninterpretable.)
Thyroglobulin Antibodies <20.0 KU/L (0.00 - 20.00KU/L
