Hi I am 21 years old and have Hashimotos which is being treated. Symptoms I have are puffiness around ankles and under eyes, tiredness, eyes feeling swollen, blurred vision, cramps in legs when walking, low heart rate, weak pulse, hair loss, dark circles under eyes, sugar cravings, salt cravings, balance problems, dizziness, ears ringing, bone pain, insomnia, pins and needles in feet and legs, feeling cold.
Results are below. Thanks for advice.
FERRITIN 36 (30 - 400) iron infusion given in May 2016 which brought ferritin up to 189, given 1x ferrous fumarate tablet per day since Feb 2017 but I am sure it should be more than 1 per day. No longer monitored by haematology since they have said my care can be managed by primary care.
FOLATE 2.2 (2.5 - 19.5) given folic acid in 2016.
VITAMIN B12 339 (190 - 900) After this result haematology requested I have a trial of B12 injections to be given 1 every 3 weeks due to signs of B12 deficiency despite negative intrinsic factor antibodies.
TOTAL 25 OH VITAMIN D 69.9 (50 - 75 SUBOPTIMAL) Been taking 6000iu vitamin D since March 2015. Was prescribed 800iu by the doctor due to vitamin D deficiency in 2013 but this was not raising my levels.
