My daughter has just received her blood results. She has Hypothyroidism, Pernicious Anaemia, and has just had a test result back saying she has Inflammatory bowel disease, namely Crohn's or non specific ileitis. She will be seeing a Gastro consultant very soon for more investigations. Apart from her acid/bloated stomach symptoms, her other symptoms are: fatigue, weight gain, brain fog, breathless, painful swollen eyes, cold, feeling down. She is taking 150 thyroxine daily and B12 injection 3 months.
TSH 2.38 (0.27-4.2)
Free Thyroixine 21.8 (0.27-4.2)
Active B12 - 78 (25.1-165)
Folate 5.9 (4.6-18.7)
Iron 23.2 (6.6 - 26.0)
Vit D 49 (50-200)
What is the best Vit D supplement I should buy and how much a day would you recommend to raise her levels.
I have asked her Dr to give her a B12 injection every 2 months instead of 3, they will not allow. Should she take a B12 by mouth in between injections?
She has tried taking 175 of thyroxine, however this make her hyper?
She has very high Thyroid antibodies - 1000
I am presuming as she has just been diagnosed with IBD her Pernicious Anaemia has something to do with it?
I look forward to hearing from you ...... your advice is so much appreciated.
