Just been for my blood results, saw a locum and I've left the surgery in tears.
B12 (128) range 180 - 914
Ferritin (38) range 11 - 307
Folate (6.6) range 3.1 - 19.9
TSH (2.78) range 0.2 - 4
Im due to start loading doses of b12 tomorrow.
Told the dr it was my understanding that al of the above needed to be mid to high range to get The full benefit of Levo. He disagreed, saying I could supplement these myself if I wanted to.
He then wanted to keep my Levo at 125mcg because I am in range. I explained my last reading was 1.44 and that I feel better lower down. He said again that I am in range. I lost it a bit and said he wasn't treating my symptoms. He then suggested alternating between 125 and 150 Levo.
So my question to you all is, how much do I need to take of ferritin and folate daily?
And, does anyone know why my b12 would suddenly drop when it's been fine for approx 2 years? I've already had a negative result for antibodies, suggesting pernicious anaemia unlikely.
Sorry in advance for the long post, I'm just really fed up of feeling like this.
