I have had hypo symptoms for nigh on 20 years (since 1st pregnancy) so I was so happy to finally be treated but I feel more tired than ever.
I got a copy of my last bloods and see that my ferritin is 22, iron levels are well below range and I have very high markers for inflammation which explains why I look like a beach ball on legs! My GP did not tell me this, just about the hypo, and did not prescribe iron supps. High blood pressure was diagnosed just prior to hypo diagnosis and I am on Losartan for that. Anyone know if effective hypo treatment will resolve this?
I am so desperate to start to feel like a normal person again. I have felt like crap for almost half my life. My next GP appointment is in 2 weeks. Any suggestions on what to ask, should I ask for T3 supplements as well? I am aware that a lot of GPs don't have a lot of knowledge of the thyroid so I want to be well armed!
Anyone know about iron transfusions and where you can get them done?
Grateful for any advice.
