As a follow up from this post healthunlocked.com/thyroidu...
We have some updated bloods after trying to get the doctor to do T3 T4 again but no luck. Doc blames lab even though he puts it on the form.
TSH has dropped from 4.93 to 2.07 miu/L (0.30-5.00) without a dose change.
Iron studies done.
Serum iron level 17 umol/L (10-33)
Serum transferrin 3.48 g/L (2.5-3.8)
! Unsat iron binding capacity 87umol/L (36-77)
Transferrin saturation index 19%
Serum Ferritin 18 ug/L (10-291)
Vitamin D 59 nmol/L (75-150)
! Serum total 25-OH vit D level - slight vitamin D deficiency - collect leaflet from desk (leaflet was about diet!)
Serum vitamin B12 323 ng/L (181-910)
Serum folate 8.3 ug/L (>5.40)
Serum creatine 82 umol/L (53-97)
Have lots of other results but most are middle of their relative ranges.
The Serum Ferretin has been up to 57ug/L in the past with ferrous fumarate but has dropped again after that was stopped.
I have purchased some ferrous fumarate which has raised the serum ferretin in the past but is this the right way to go with the unsat iron binding capacity being over range?
As before any advice is much appreciated.
