Blood results

Hi my latest blood results show I'm still underactive as I knew so I'm gone from 100 eltroxin back to 125 and tested again in 8 weeks. TSH 4.980 range 0.27 -4.2 T4 15.3 range 12-22 T3 4.5 range 3.1 - 6.8. I had a hashis flare in July so was reduced by my doc. My antibodies are 138 range 0-34 b12 525 range 197-771 folate 5.7 range 3.0-26.8 my ferritin is high at 198 range 13-150 anyone any ideas as to why this could be high when my folate is so low. Thanks I'd appreciate any comment

It's more common that it's low with Hashimoto's but Ferritin can be high actually because of Hashimoto's

Are you gluten free.

You might need some T3 eventually


I am gluten free have been for around three years I'm just wondering why ferritin is so high guess I may bring it up with my doc when I get next bloods


Mine remained high until T3 added (and T4 reduced) a few months ago. Last test was first with in range

I am interested to see how it is at next test


Let me know how you get on
