Hi! I recently got some results back from a vitamin test as would really love some advice. I am currently subclinical hyper (graves). The results are as follows.
Ferritin 74.1 20 - 150 ug/L
Magnesium 0.98 0.6 - 1.0 mmol/L
Sodium 141 137 - 145 mmol/L
Calcium 2.41 2.12 - 2.52 mmol/L
Corrected Calcium 2.39 2.12 - 2.52 mmol/L
Vitamin D (25 OH) L 38
Insufficient 25 - 50
Consider reducing dose >175
Vitamin B12 296
Deficient <140 pmol/L
Insufficient 140 - 250
Consider reducing dose >725
Serum Folate 40.32 8.83 - 60.8 nmol/L
Minerals - Blood
Selenium* H 2.03 1.00 - 1.90 umol/L
Zinc (Plasma)* 13.00 11 - 18 umol/L
So my main questions are:
Vitamin D3 - This was borderline adequate in November. I am surprised this has dropped considering a 16 day trip away to a sunny place over xmas- would a drop like this be considered abnormal or are the antibodies just wrecking havoc on my body? I will be seeing my endo in a week but my initial thoughts are to supplement on 5000iu a day with KW mk7. Would magnesium or calcium also be needed?
B12 - (I think this may have also come down since November, first test used a different range) considered normal but from what I have read this should ideally be in top quater. Am i right to supplement with Lozenges and a b complex? I was thinking 5000 a day?
Serum Folate , Ferritin and zinc - I dont know much about these, I'm thinking these levels are ok.
Selenium - Assuming this is a little high due to my multivitamins and some brazil nuts. Will be stopping these
Any advice given would be appreciate!
