  • Andypandy30,

    100mcg appears to be the right dose as TSH is low and FT4 high in range.

    Serum iron is high. If the multivit contains iron you should stop taking it. Has your GP said anything?

    All the other results are within range.

  • Thank you clutter yes iv been told haemachromatosis and waiting on referral . I have joint pain and weakness still :just got first b12 last week . Don't feel any different tbh . Was considering starting vitd3 and b vitamins with the injections . What about folate ? How do I supplement that x I was worried tsh was too low x

  • Andypandy30,

    Folate is in range. Why do you want to supplement? It won't hurt to supplement with B Complex vitamin which will have a little folate in it.

    What is your vitD result?

  • Someone thought it was low when I posted yesterday . So that's ok I will take b vitamins . They would not test vit d as I asked . Should I do private or start the Holland and Barrett d3 and how much thank you .

  • Andypandy30,

    Order a vitD test from City Assays to see whether you need to supplement and, if you do, how much.

  • Ok thank you x
