I've been having some mild symptoms for a couple of years now which seem to be getting worse. Fatigue, brain fog, weight gain, dry skin, dry eyes, general aches and pains etc., etc. Some general blood test results in September (taken after a parasite infection) showed by my B12 was at 182 and my ferritin was low. I've been back to the Doctor for more tests as the tiredness is really getting me down and stopping me from living a normal life and the results are as follows:
Serum Ferritin 27 ug/L (22 - 275)
Serum Folate 4.6 ug/L (3.10-20.50)
Serum Vitamin D 38 (between 30 and 50 insufficiency)
Serum B12 265 ng/l (187-863)
Serum sodium 141 mmol/L. (135-145 mmol/l )
Serum potassium 4.8 mmol/l. (3.50-5.00 mmol/l )
Serum creatinine 83 ummol/l. (45.00-84.00 mmol/l )
GFR 67 ml/min. (70-130.00 ml/min)
TSH 5.78 ml/U/L (0.27-4.20 ml/UL)
Ft4 12.9. Pmol/l. (10.00-23.00)
Thyroid Peroxide Antibodies 8.1 (0-34)
I have been on iron supplements for 4 months now so my ferritin levels have gone up slightly but doctor has told me to keep taking them until it gets up to 70. I have also been taking a B12 supplements (one from amazon that you suck) and have now been given a Vitamin D supplement.
My doctor says that the thyroid results are just showing that I might get an underactive thyroid one day but that there is nobody he can refer me to do as the blood tests do not show anything in particular. He said that a TSH level of 5.78 would never show symptoms. He asked me to go back in 6-8 weeks to have my B12 and ferritin levels checked again. Should I just leave it at that and hope the vitamin D makes me feel better?
Thanks for your help in advance.
