Could someone please help me to understand my results. I have high TPO and TG antibodies as well and they are in my first post. I just don't know what to make of these results or what I am doing wrong. I am at my wit's end at trying to understand.
Serum ferritin - 16 (15 - 150 ug/L)
Serum folate - 2.37 (2.50 - 19.50 ug/L)
Serum vitamin B12 - 196 (180 - 900 pg/L)
Total 25 OH vitamin D - 41.5 (>75 nmol/L adequate vitamin D)
Ferritin my doctor wants me to take 3 tablets a day but my stomach feels heavy after taking just one. I am aware I need to take iron tablets because I have heavy periods. I have been taking iron since 2013 and ferritin has never gone high.
Folate I eat a lot of folate rich foods and doctor can't explain deficiency so prescribed me folic acid 5mg once a day. I was deficient before in 2013 but the reason behind that was because I just hardly ate. Now my diet is better it has gone low again.
Vitamin B12 was 100 points higher about a week before these results. B12 was redone to prepare for haematology appointment.
Vitamin D keeps getting prescribed and removed and prescribed again by the doctor I wish I knew why. I give up taking the 1000iu ones I have been taking since 2015 because my vitamin D just does not rise on this.
