I'm wondering if anyone can tell me whether a private pinprick iron test could be useful please? I've just noticed my ferritin is bottom of the range again after having blood test for kidneys/inflammation due to water infection (no infection found but red/white blood cells) and 4 courses of antibiotics. I still have some symptoms, but remember having these when my ferritin got very low couple of years ago. I've taken supplements since, but it always seems to settle back to bottom of range once I stop them.
I'm having monthly b12 jabs(6 months), last thyroid result tsh was 6.28, so due to have it rechecked January. I've had low vit d, and folate dropped to 6 (3-15).
Just wondering if having iron, tibc and transferrin could through anymore light on the iron front? I've noticed medicheck do a test for £39?
Any ideas really appreciated many thanks...
