I've been hypo for about 2 years and am now on 175mcg thyroxine with a suppressed TSH of 0.03. I've had ongoing issues with very low ferritin which doesn't rise much on supplementation. My levels from last week's blood test were:
Ferritin 19ug/L 9 (15-200) LOW
Iron 39umol/L (10-30) ABNORMALLY HIGH
Transferrin Saturation 60% (10-30) ABNORMALLY HIGH
Transferrin 2.60g/L (2.00-4.00)
Haemoglobin 151g/L (115-165)
However my levels from 6 months ago were:
Ferritin 9ug/L (15-200) ABNORMALLY LOW
Iron 17umol/L (10-30)
Transferrin Saturation 23% (25 - 50) LOW
Transferrin 2.90g/L (2.00- 4.00)
Haemoglobin 138 (115-165)
Does anyone have any idea what this could mean? I've been supplementing between these blood tests (and stopped a good month before test) and i've got no idea why my iron and transferrin saturation have rocketed whilst i remain still very low on ferritin. My haemoglobin is also higher than its ever been. Also my bilirubin has gone high and my platelets drop every time I have a blood test (currently 122).The GP asked me if I was 'viral' when I had my test done. I had no idea what she meant.
Sorry for all the results - I'd appreciate your take on my results.
Thank you very much.
