*Rest of Blood Tests taken for Vitamin levels and possible PCOS*
Serum B12 - 286 (>183.00 ng/L) - Normal
Bone Profile - Normal
Calcium - 2.34 (2.20-2.60)
Calcium Conc - 2.37 (2.20 - 2.60)
Alkaline Phosphatase - 104 (35.00 - 104.00)
Albumin - 38 (34.00 - 48.00)
These were taken before i started taking my B12, B Complex & Vitamin D supplements.
I have been taking VitD for 9 days (40,000iu), B12 (5000mcg) & Complex for 15 days and the only difference i have noticed is that i'm a lot calmer than i used to be and don't get as irritated quickly.
I take the first VitD, B12 & Complex together after breakfast and take the second VitD before bed and wanted to check if that was ok and it wasn't affecting the absorption of any of them? (I know it can take weeks to have any real affect but was hoping for more of a difference early on.) I'm only taking the 40,000iu for the next 5 days and then lowering it to 5,000iu a day as advised on here and will also get updated bloods.
I want to start my Iron & Vit C next and know that it's an hour before or 2 hours after food that you take them but wanted to see when was the best time to take it & again, if it would affect the absorption of the others?
i'm also hoping to re-start my Magnesium too (at quarter of the dose as advised on here and build up), I will be mentioning it to my doctor tomorrow about the bad migraines i get after taking them and also to see if there is a link with the fact i get them with Laxido and Fybogel also (all 3 i have stopped taking and have not had a migraine since) and see if there is anything she suggests to do or what could be causing it.
The main reason i'm going to my doctors tomorrow (i have thought i had it myself in the past and was brought up again with the migraines after the Magnesium) is to hopefully be tested for Adrenal Fatigue or Adrenal Insufficiency.
I'm not sure if it's that or possibly exhaustion but i've been feeling it for nearly 6 weeks now and seems to be getting worse and i have a lot of symptoms of AI and quite a few for Exhaustion.
I started my current job in January '16, I was on the Counters so it was not very strenuous, since then i have moved departments and now do replenishment but, i work on fresh foods and only have 30 minutes max per roller to get the stock out. At first i could do 13/14 rollers in 5 hours or so but in the last 6 weeks i've really struggled (yesterday, it took me 2 hours to do 2 half full ones). I do have insomnia, I don't sleep well at night and i know that Hyperthyroidism can cause tiredness too but i feel it's more than that. i never have energy or the motivation to do anything, when i wake up i'm yawning and continue to do so throughout the day, if it's my day off i want to sleep all day and my eyes get really heavy around dinner time. It feels like my body is at it's limit and the more i try to push myself to get through it the more my body resists.
My FT3 & FT4 is within range and my TSH is surpressed, i have no other side effects of my thyroid as they have been put down to my low levels of VitD, Iron & Folate.
It's really affecting my job and can't afford to lose it or give it up and was wondering if anyone has any advice on what i could do or if there is anything else i could be tested for that it could be? In a previous post, I stated how great my doctor was as everything i wanted checking she did without questions or trying to get out of them, well tomorrow is her last day at my surgery and have a feeling that nothings gonna be checked unless necessary after this appointment
Sorry if this doesn't make much sense, my brain is working faster than my typing and i'm trying not to forget anything.
Also, does anyone know if GP's can prescribe Metformin or is it just Gynecologists? I was being referred to one but it doesn't look like i am now and i need my blood sugar and insulin levels under control as well as the fact that no matter what i do i only seem to put weight on or stay the same and not lose it
