Theresa72 Have you had any new tests done yet? Old ones are no good as already mentioned, it's been recommended you get new ones done. Low ferritin could be causing your hair loss but you need up to date tests.

When you've got the results, make a new thread and include the reference ranges with the all the results, they can't be interpreted without the ranges.

If you're having any thyroid tests done then book the earliest appointment of the day, no later than 9am, fast from the night before (water only).

If you take thyroid meds or supplements then take them when you get home, not before the blood draw. Thyroid meds should be left off for 24 hours.
