Hello, my daughter was told 6 months ago that she was borderline Aneamic, and told not to worry just eat more meat and no need for further blood tests. After several symptoms (restless legs syndrome, falling asleep at every opportunity except at night, really pale skin and dark circles, missed periods) I took her back to the Dr. Anyway now it seems she is severely Aneamic, told to eat more meat and 3 x Ferrous Sulphate a day andd should take weeks to feel better. Her results were TSH 2.4 (0.4 - 4.9) / Ferritin 4 (5 - 204) / B12 204 (187 - 883) / Folate 7.4 (3.1 - 20.5) /Haemoglobin concentration 80 (115 - 160).
I was told her thyroid is completely normal, but I know her B12 and Folate and Ferritin will be governed by her thyroid, I told her it was in the family but she dismissed it totally and said they wouldn't do her T4 or T3 anyway. Dr was very concerned and anxious to get her blood levels up quickly and is testing again in 2 weeks.
I am self medicating myself but feel very nervous advising my young daughter to do the same, I have ordered some Thyro Gold for myself, would this hurt for her to try, or would Hemp Plex get her Ferritin up more quickly than Ferrous Sulphate? Any thoughts appreciated, thank you.
