A while ago I posted that I was feeling breathless after doing very little, even just walking up the stairs and I asked for some advice. It was suggested that I get some blood tests done, including my FT3 and so I had a private blood test done through Blue Horizon. I am currently taking 125 mg of T4 and 40 mg of T3. These are my results:
TSH - 0.010 (0.270-4.200) It is suggested I increase my Levothyroxine which I have to 150mg
Free T4 - 12.84 (12-22)
Free T3 - 5.5 (3.1 - 6.8)
Vitamin B12 - 410 (191-663)
Folate (serum) 12.2 (4.6-18.7)
Ferritin 125.2 (13-150)
Vitamin D 79.3
Serum cortisol 25 - This was taken a year ago by my GP and marked as "normal". I saw an endo who confirmed it was "normal"
One thing picked up on this latest blood test is:
Transferrin saturation - 50.9 (15-45) and that apparently indicates an iron overload???
The advice is to have another blood test for this in 6 weeks time. Does anyone know about this?
Any advice or comments would be appreciated.
I also have Essential Thrombocythemia
