In my previous post I explained I do have a lot of joint pain, was found to be Vit D deficient, corrected that , pains essentially the same, ( a bit better ),
Well I have had some more blood results.
An interesting result being a Ferritin level of. 500 ( not 50 , but 500 )
any comments on that. ? Doc didn't seem too worried, he reckoned that 350 was top of the normal range, so I'm only 150 above that .....so what the heck . ?
Vit D level was 142 nmol /L , when last measured. ( so not overdosing on that. )
I am taking 500 mg of vit C , per day , and also a multi vit with 6 mg of iron. , usually at the same time of day. ( Wellman Original ) Which I have been taking for about the last 2 years.
The joint pains etc , pre-dated this, in fact that was why I started taking supplements, in order to try and alleviate those symptoms. I continue to take 5000 IU of vit D , as I don't think that is making me toxic at 142 nmol/l .
Is that ferritin just a high normal result, or is there something else ?
Liver enzymes seem to be a bit raised still, and the diabetes test looks positive, although doc reckons I can control it by losing weight. Which I am doing for the last few weeks , anyway ...!
