I am having one of those rare periods of feeling strong enough to fight back and not accept my fate ! A continual struggle at GP surgery ( almost ten years ) due to inconsistency and differing opinion amongst staff . Was finally diagnosed four years ago and on Levo since ( recently increased again and now feeling strong enough to continue investigating and educating myself, although I probably wont retain any of it !
Did the Blue Horizon blood test and received results today, have requested ring back from GP tonight as I have forwarded them a copy but really need the support and insight from you guys before the battle commences!

First time I have ever been tested for these essential Vitamins even though I have complained about various symptoms of deficiency over the years ( hope this hasn't caused any lasting damage ? ) Really concerned about antibodies as this suggests Hashis which had never been suggested to me before. Really anxious AND angry....Please help
