I have recently had my endocrinologist refuse to retest me on the magic five (except Vit D) with no explanation before my next consultation on the 7/2/2017. The previous tests were done 26/8/2015 [one year five months ago - I do supplement but I know its not adequate. I am on LT3/LT4]:
Vitamin B12 398 ng/L 211 -911
Folate * 18.6 ug/L 3.0 -14.4
Ferritin 25 ug/L 15-290
Iron 14 umol/L 11-31
Transferrin 2.9 g/L 1.8-3.3
Iron saturation 19% 12-55
Please can you signpost me any evidence that backs up the need, as a Hypothyroid/Hashimotos Thyroiditis/ Hypovitaminosis D patient, to be at the top of the range for the 'magic five'.
Also any citation for the need of the NHS to demonstrate duty of care by conducting regular checks (e.g. every 6 months) to monitor the levels of the 'magic five'.
I am seeing my GP on 16/1/2017 in the hope she will grant the tests and want to be very prepared!!
