I posted yesterday about my high anti-thyroglobulin abs, but am confused by the high ferritin. Many thanks for all the support you guys give, it has helped me so much 😘😘
Had a blood test with Blue Horizon.
I had a Total Thyroidectomy 16 years ago, removed as the thyroid was enlarged, was hyper and had largish goitre on the side of my neck. At the time there was not a lot of Internet access, never mind info and awareness! There was no cancer at the time and never given any other info by Endo.Been taking T3 for 3 weeks, starting with two 5mcg doses, now on a 10 and a 5. Also taking Levo, reduced from 142.5 to 100 three weeks ago.
Ferritin and anti-thyroglobulin both high and indicated in red on the test report.
CRP 0.60. (<5.0)
Ferritin 204. (20-150). High
TSH. 0.31. (0.27-4.2)
T4 total. 87.5. (64.5-142)
Free T4 16.54. (12-22)
Free T3 5.21. (3.1-6.8)
Anti-thyroidperoxidase abs. 23.5. (<34)
Anti-thyroglobulin abs 1642. (<115)
B12 355. (Deficient <140; insufficient 140-250. Consider reducing dose > 725
Serum folate 27.71. (10.4-42.4)
Baffled by the high ferritin
Are the FT3 and FT4 OK.? Will increase by 5mcg in two weeks (been doing it gradually and palpitations have totally disappeared)
.... Many thanks
