Hi, as suggested I asked my new GP for blood tests including Vit D, Ferritin, B12 Serum Folates. They didn't do T3. I had still been feeling low in energy and spirit and aching muscles and joints. Currently on 50 Levo one day and 75 next. Last bloods my TSH had gone up from 4.39 to 6.37 which was when this new lady GP suggested the dosage and agreed to do the other test this time. Will post results below for advice please on what the significance of the levels but GP rang and put me on 20mcg a day Vit D3 (Colecalciferol?).It says on lab results that <25 nmol/l is deficient, 25-50 nmol/l insufficient. Mine was 8.5. Pretty damn low??
Sorry if this is boring but need help please on what else I can do to help myself. Here goes...means very little to me!
TSH 1.89 (0.2 to 4.2)
Free T4 16.2 (12 to 22) was 14 and 11 before that and 7 in first one I think
Ferritin 198 ng/ml (13 to 150) there was a # and a note to say NB Ferritin is an acute phase Protein...what does that mean please?
B12 306 (197 to 866)
Serum folates 9.0 (4.6 to 18.7)
Vit D 8.5 (no normal range given but see note above)
Some thing called Eosinophils was also # 0.5 (0 to 0.4) but I have no idea what it is.
There was also a note which says ' a folate result at the lower end of the normal range may not exclude folate deficiency if clinically suspected. The doc didn't mention this. Should I just take the vit D and leave the other. There were other blood results which may be significant for the folate result but since I don't know what it is I haven't included them.
I hope all this makes sense and I really will be very grateful for your help. Many thanks.
