I have been reading this forum but this is my post. I am in 200mcg of Thyroxine and still feel pretty dreadful and have researching on this forum about how to improve.
However last week, I went to donate blood and (for the third time) was refused due to too low haemoglobin - so low they told me to go to the GP.
So here I am... The GP ordered a FBC and has shown the following to be low -
Haemoglobin concentrate 104 g/L (120-150)
Mean cell haemoglobin 23 pg (27-32)
Mean cell volume 77 fL (83-101)
Also Harmatocrit 36% (36-46)
My TSH level 3.1 & T4 15.1
I haven't spoken to my GP yet - he sent me for ferritin blood test today.
So I think my question is, I'm obviously aneamic - do you think the years of symptoms that I assumed were due to my thyroid were in fact due to aneamia?
