Hello I was wondering if anyone could help me please? I was diagnosed with an underactive thyroid about 8 years ago now. After a long while my levels were finally right and I take 125mg of Thyroixine now. I have always felt okay with this and managed to lose the weight I had gained before diagnosis.
A few months ago I started feeling tired, drained etc. again you know the normal underactive symptons we all get. I went to my doctor and eventually was found to be B12 deficient, which as I'm sure many people know causes a lot of the afore mentioned symptoms too. I am being treated for this with B12 injections which do help although I don't get them as frequently as I feel I need them. My GP at the time ordered a few blood tests including one to check for antibodies which came back clear.
I have since joined this forum and one for pernicious anaemia and the more I read the more I realise I should be doing more research into all of this and in order to do this I know I need to get a copy of my blood results from my GP.
My worry is I have diagnosed with these disorders and should my GP be looking into why this has happened? It would seem they are connected yet I feel I have just been left in the dark.
Can anyone help me at all as to what I should do or indeed anything.
