Has your doctor actually said you have Pernicious Anaemia? You would need a special test for the intrinsic factor and if you had it you HAVE to have B12 injections. If you get the actual print-out from the surgery with the ranges you can also post on the Pernicious Anaemia Site for advice.
New research has shown that we need an optimum B12 of around 1,000.
If you have thyroid antibodies, you have an Autoimmune Thyroid Disease (also called Hashimotos) and antibodies attack your thyroid gland and at times wax and wane. That's why sometimes you feel hyper and probably the cause is the high antibodies. Someone with thyroid antibodies have to have levothyroxine. If you email email@example.com and ask for a copy of the Pulse Online article by Dr Toft. He was President of the BTA and in his article he states if antibodies are present we should be given levothyroxine. Highlight this part and ask GP to prescribed.
Always get a print-out of your results with the ranges for your own records and post if you have a query. With antibodies you have an Autoimmune Thyroid Condition called Hashimoto's, hashi's for short. Going gluten-free can reduce the antibodies and thus the attack on your gland. You will be hypothyroid eventually and treatment for both conditions are the same, i.e. levothyroxine.
Blood tests for thyroid hormones have to be at the very earliest, fasting (you can drink water) and if you were taking thyroid hormones you'd allow a gap of around 24 hours between last dose and test and take afterwards. This helps give us the highest TSH as that seems to be the only result the GP looks at. Also ask for B12, Vit D, iron, ferritin and folate to be tested as we are usually deficient and everything has to be optimum.
If you've not had a blood test for a while and didn't follow the above protocol, ask for a new test saying you've had some advice from the NHS Choices for advice about the thyroid gland.
Get a print-out of your results and always put the ranges as labs differ and it is necessary for members to comment upon them and put them on a new post..
