I had an appointment today with the doc who helps me with my thyroid. This is only my second appointment. He writes the scrips I need (so far. Though I'm still on a very low dose still), and orders the proper labs, BUT today I asked for an IRON IV infusion. He said it'd be very difficult to find a hematologist willing to do it, and he isn't sure whether that will make things worse because iron feeds Epstein Barr Virus. I have never heard of this.
While he agreed with me that it may very well help me feel better and better convert, and I have been low Ferritin for decades, have stage 3 endometriosis, high testosterone and low progesterone, he wasn't sure whether the infusion, if I can get it, will make things worse.
Have you heard this? I have an appointment time t with an ob/gym on the 20th. I will ask her to infuse the iron. I'm not improving on high doses of good iron supplements, I've been low ferritin for decades, and I believe it is inhibiting my conversion/full ability to use the NDT.
What say you??
Thank you so much for your time.
