I am not sure are my iron panel results just ok or good?
Iron 13.4 (9-34) ( optimal 20)
TrFeSat 0.25 (0.15-0.45)
TransFer 2.2 (1.8-3.2)
Ferrit 32 (5-90)
D 25 28 (>50)
Fe-folate 507 (> 360)
Negative rheumatoid factor
Plus tons of other tests that only show increased eosinophil % which probably is down to allergies.
TSH 3.5 (0.4-4)
T4 10 ( 10-25)
T3 5 ( 3.5-6.5)
Not true iron deficiency, but I have understood that optimal serum iron is 20.
Ferritin seems to have a bit different range so I don't understand is it good or bad.
I am now supplementing some iron, not a lot though, but I have heavy periods and seems that boosting iron here and there is ok. Probably won't do huge difference, but any improvement in wellbeing is very welcome as I am ridiculously tired.
I also started high dose vitamin D.
My long term foliate seems okish too. Never supplemented , but I eat quite a lot of berries that are high in foliate.
Active B12 was optimal. Have supplemented some during past months, but not every day, maybe twice a week here and there. I have no idea does it make a difference ?
I have doctors appointment tomorrow to discuss about my test results. Some results are still pending as they are not given to me before doctor has seen them. Was all possible antibodies to detect any systemic autoimmune disease.
My TSH was 3 on January and T4 10. So nothing much has changed.
