Hi everyone, I've just got a printout of my latest blood results and would like some help with them.
Despite me raising my concerns with my GP about my symtoms (hair loss, hair brittle and dry, get hold and sweaty really easily, brain fog/confusion/memory problems, diarrhoea, pounding heart, weight gain, light periods, fatigue, weight gain) and me bringing up that I thought it might be thyroid issue and pointing out that in my last blood results my TSH was 3.1 (0.27-4.20) and had risen from 2.8 a few months before, and free t4 was 13.1 (12-22), and also questioning my B12 level 206 (191-663), he's not included any of these tests! Grrrrrrrrrrr.
Anyway, some have come back that I don't really understand and would like some help with.
Serum C reactive protein level 5.1 (<5.0) "high"
Serum ferritin 75 (13-150)
Iron level 15.5 (7-26)
Unsat iron binding capacity 73.5 (45-70) "high"
Iron saturation 21.2% (20-50)
Tissu transglutaminase 0.2 (0.0-7)
Vitamin D >75
25-hydroxyvitamin D2 <5.0
25-hydroxyvitamin D3 113.7
Serum vitamin D 113.7 (50-125) - (should I stop taking my vitamin D supplements?)
Haemoglobin estimation 123 (115-165)
Red blood cell count 4.38 (3.8-5.80
Haematocrit 0.37 (0.37-0.47)
Mean corposcular volume 84.5 (80-100)
As I don't know whether the rest are worth typing out, I'll just type out the ones on the edges of ranges. They're all blood count things.
Total white cell count 4.8 (4-11)
Neutrophil count 2.3 (1.8-7.5)
Monocyte count 0.3 (0.2-0.8)
Platelet count 214 (150-450)
Yep so that's everything. Thanks.
