I'm so glad I came across this site.
I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia 3 years ago but I manage it with diet...cutting out gluten helps immensely - though it's hard as bread is sooooo good!
I take 10mg citalopram daily. 1000mg Vit C, just started Vit B complex and Ultra Muscle-Eze for magnesium
Recently I've been experiencing rapid weight gain (1 st in 6 weeks), uncontrollable carb/sugar cravings, horrendous fatigue/apathy and hair loss. I also have low self esteem at the moment which is quite new for me.
I have a feeling I have a leaky gut, too
My surgery has done a blood screening anu my results are as follows:
Ferritin: 21 (Range 5-85)
Free T4: 11.1 (7-17)
TSH: 3.32 (0.20-4.50)
Low Serum Albumin: 34 (35-50)
Low Platelet count: 145 (150-450)
Sodium: 137 (133-146)
B12: 326 (146-910)
Folate: 6 (3-20)
Vit C: <1 (0.00-7)
Obviously there are more results so if there's anything I've missed off that would be helpful, let me know.
Can anyone she'd some light on these results and whether I may need some thyroid support or if it could be something else.
It's been so long since I felt well and I'm only 39, I want to run around with my daughter and have fun living life again...not feeling old before my time.
Thanks in advance for your help x
