I had a private blood test to check Iron and Ferritin levels because of a cluster of symptoms that have become particularly dominant in the last month or so.
Should I be concerned about these results?
Iron Serum 91µg/100ml (50-170) Previous result - 111 20/09/2016
Transferrin 260g/L (1.73-3.60)
Total Transferrin capacity 363µg/100ml (250-450)
Co-efficient of Transferrin 25% (20-40)
Ferritin 205ng/ml Previous result - 68 29/7/2015 Severe risk of iron overload Adults >150ng/ml
Levothyroxine Dose: 125 µg uplifted to 137.5 µg at beginning of April. If THS levels are ok in June then a further uplift to 150 µg will be implemented.
I would be grateful for just initial thoughts at the moment - its complicated.
