Hi all .. saw my new GP today re very low iron levels. She advised 10.4 for Ferritin is fine as H.awniglobun is 134!! Not going to talk about supplements with GPS it's a waste of time. She did not even think I need Iron!! When I pointed out that THYROID UK was advising me to get Ferritin levels up to 70 at least to process new Levothroxine she reluctantly prescribed ferrous fumerate. Blood test for 3 months to check levels. hypothyroidism appears to be sooo misunderstood and ignored. I told her my renal doc has asked for repeat bloods in 3 weeks and 3 mths RE Levo. Did not appear interested. Hugs xx
