Hi, Many thanks for previous comments. I have now had some further blood tests done and the results are as follows:
Serum Ferritin 108 ng/mL Normal range: 11-307ng/mL
comment on my file: Ferritin levels may be elevated through mechanisms not, reflective of iron status eg inflammatory conditions.
Not entirely sure what this means - I have osteo arthritis and am due for TKR next week.
Serum Vitamin D 63.2 nmol/L - comment on my file: Slight Vitamin D insufficiency and might benefit from purchasing supplements, Vitamin D ref ranges, <50 nmol/L Vit D deficiency, 50-75 nmol/L Vit D insufficiency, >75 nmol/L Vit D sufficiency, 250 nmol/L Upper Limit (I already take Vit D supplement of 2000 iu daily).
Serum Vitamin B12 561 pg/mL
Serum Folate 13.9 ng/mL Normal range: 3.1 - 19.9ng/mL
Serum free T4 10 pmol/L Normal range 6.5-17pmol/L
Serum TSH 1.17 uIU/ml Normal range: 0.34 - 5.61uIU/ml
Comment on my file: THE RESULTS FOR FT3/FT4 MAY BE HIGHER THAN THE TRUE, VALUE IF THE PATIENT IS USING BIOTIN (I take 200ug each day).
Hope someone can help interpret this information, as I am still experiencing great tiredness and often needing to sleep at least two hours every afternoon.
Thanks in advance
