Just got my bloods back and a few of my iron markers are over range apart from my Ferritin! Grrrr! This is the only one I was really interested in boosting due to hair loss.
It was up at 100 at the beg of Feb.
I was taking 2 Florisene tablets but have cut down to 1 as I am now taking Pregnacare New Mum as my multivitamin (they have iron & lots of other useful vits & mins for hair)
!Serum Iron 34 (5-33)
Serum Transferrin 2.76 (2.15-3.8)
Serum TIBC 63 (36-77)
!Sat Iron Bind Cap 54 (15-50)
Serum Vit B12 648 (180-910)
!Serum Folate >24 (5.4 - 24)
Serum Ferritin 75 (10-291)
TSH 0.2 (0.2 -6)
FT4 13.7 (10-20)
FT3 3.9 (3.5 -7)
I have just added 12.5mcg of T3 (half a 25) to approx 70mg of Levo (100mg but skip 2 days)...looks like I might need a bit more...Will do a sep post about these thyroid results to avoid diluting the iron conversation, if thats ok?
Any ideas on how to raise ferritin but without causing too much upset to the other iron markers?
Is the quality of the Iron Important? Just wondering whether I absorbed the Florisene easier than the Pregnacare stuff?? Any help, advice & experience about Iron will be gratefully received. x
