my last B12 .......244


Your B12 is definitely too low. Have you had your Ferritin/Iron/Folate checked.

It is difficult to help without the results. A TSH of 0.5 is good for some people and not for others but what really matters is your actual hormone levels (ft4/t3).

Sorry you are having such difficulty. I know it can be hard to push with the docs when we are already feeling low but keep fighting. Get them to look into your B12 further and why it is low.



penny rose my t4 is 9 my cortisol in range, tsh 0.7 b12 244, VIt D 24 still awaiting apt for prolapse, ave apt for endrio in may 29th, i will persist, thankyou xxx

ps been reading bout test i need there is loads! lets hope the next specialist is more emphatic xx


Oh bless you. You poor love. I've been ill like you but also emotional problems from a terrible traumatic childhood, adulthood. Now I've met my lovely husband of 3 years who has been so great and I have had therapy started. However all the rubbish has come out and I felt so awful I felt suicidal. My elder son had same experience as yours and it's heart breaking. He loves you so much but you must not feel a burden, it's not your fault.... (do watch on iplayer from yesterday, thurs DIY SOS and get yr son to watch too as you will see what i mean. The system has let us down.... Now down to yr results. Get your T3, CORTISOL ETC tested. Go on ..Tyroid UK blood test result .. and it will explain levels and why the TSH measurement is flawed. I had so many symptoms some needing other meds but the symptoms I have are so similar to under active thyroid. Push the NHS, we did and got my results. My T3 is border line and my cortisol is low and they want to retest... I am taking Thyroid S, NDT. I think you can get retiable from the administrator on this site. I have had one days worth and my energy levels are better. Don't give up there is hope. Or private endo's on the site too. Good luck xx
