Can I ask your advice again please? Ive just had my 3rd once monthly b12 inj. And decided to check thyroid antibodiesjust to rule out thyroid issues. Also a bit concerned as my last 2 thyroid tests, August, March, changed tsh was 0.95, went up to 3.14, and f4 had dropped from 14 to 12. Have never had thyroid treatment, just a diagnosis of m.e. For 17 years...
My ferritin was low 20s, so looks like this has increased with a few months of iron supplementation again. My folate was 6, so I started folic acid, but literally only took them for a few weeks, now it seems to be overrange. Discovered low vit d too last year, but haven't checked that recently.
My BH test results are as follows
Crp, fine at 0.2
TSH 6.28 (0.27-4.20)
T4 total 119.6 (64.5-142)
Free t4 16.15 (12-22)
Free t3 5.29 (3.1-6.8)
Antithyroid peroxidase 9.0 <34
Anti thyroglobulin abs 16.1 <115
Folate 45.4 (10.4-42.4)
I'm starting to see improvements in some symptoms now relating to b12, but am concerned about the higher tsh. And whether it could be contributing to symptoms, such as brain fog, memory probs, exhaustion, sleep probs, memory, inability to gain weight, balance, etc.
Has anyone seen a change in this when starting b12 supplementation please or do you think this is a separate issue. Is there anything I can do to try to lower this?
Once again any thoughts greatly appreciated....thanks
