All the latest are "fine" (no further action) according to my doctor
TSH 1.99 (0.35 - 3.5)
was 2.35 last month, also "fine" but I asked for more Levo as TSH had increased, now on 75mg a day
Antibody level 33.5 (0.0 - 34.0)
Immunoglobin A 0.25 (0.8 - 4.0)below range
Immunoglobin M 4.48 (0.5 - 2.0) above range
Folate 3.1 (2.7 - 15)
Erythrocyte sedimentation rate 81 (0.0 - 19.0) above range
Ferritin last done June 152 (23.0 - 300.0)
T4 also in June 15 (8.0 - 21)
I still have the same symptoms (lethargy/tiredness/no energy ) as I've had for the past 2 years, I also have TED since April 2013 (currently stable) got shingles 6 weeks ago and am currently signed off sick.
I take 400mg ferrous sulphate a day as my body will not store any excess iron.
So, my question is should I
A/ plod on regardless with current GP
b/ try another GP who might look outside those damn scales
Or c/ use my private insurance and get referred to an endocrinologist knowing that they appear to be few and far between and I'd probably have to travel to London?
Any thoughts appreciated
