My daughter is nearly 17 (24th September 2016). She is so tired all the time. This is the second lot of blood tests completed by GP. I am sure that she has CFS like myself.
Anyway, her latest bloods are:
Serum total billirubin 23 umol/L Range: (0 - 21)
Haemoglobin estimation: 0.359 Ratio Range: (0.370-0.470)
Red blood cell distribut..width 11.4 Range: (11.8-14.00)
Serum vit B12 582ng/L Range: (200-900)
Serum Folate 8.9 Range: (4.6-18.7)
Serum Ferritin 41 ug/L Range: (12 - 300).
TSH: Serum level 0.61 Range (0.35-5.00)
Free T4 (Serum level) 17.3 pmo1/L Range (11.0-23.0)
***Since the last lot of blood tests I have given her Q10 (300 mg daily), and a very good multi-vitamin with folate, minerals and vits).
Well, you have guessed it...........the GP says that the above tests are fine! I am now going to purchase Iron tabs (re: Low ferritin and Low folate). But I am worried that they may cause constipation? Perhaps take it with Vit C?
Can anybody please advice? I am so worried about her. She is only 16 years old, started her first day at college today (studying languages). She came back exhausted. It breaks my heart. Please help.
