Hi, I'm looking for some help with interpreting my blood test results. I feel that everything is being looked at separately and no connections are being made. I had Laryngeal cancer last year and was treated with radical radiotherapy, my treatment finished in January 2016. I was diagnosed hypothyroid and stared on Levothyroxine in July. I'm now on 75mg a day and my current TSH is 3.6. Although my head and neck specialists say it was too soon to have been caused by the radiotherapy my gp refuses to test for antibodies, T3, T4, FT3 or FT4.
I have a history of autoimmune diseases including seronegative Sjögren's syndrome, myasthenia gravis, lichen sclerosus and probable Raynaud's. I have positive ANA. I also had extremely low vitamin D in in 2015 but that is now 54.5. I have just managed to get these other blood test results from my gp as when I phoned for results I was just told normal, no action required. I would appreciate any views on these other results considering my AI history and almost constant inflammation somewhere or other.
Serum vit B12 255ng/L. (180 - 1000)
Serum folate 4.3 ug/L. (>4.00)
Serum ferritin 68 ug/L. (10 - 300)
It does say the ferritin may not be accurate with co-existing inflammatory disease but no mention was made on the blood test form. Also no mention on the form of suspected autoimmune B12 deficiency although they should have requested intrinsic factor testing.
Thank you for taking the time to read all this.
