Diagnosed iron deficient in 2013, initially took 210mg ferrous fumarate 3 times a day but couldn't tolerate taking more than one. Went to the GP more than once about this problem and he told me to stop being noncompliant and making things up. Eventually ferritin got so low I needed an iron infusion in 2016. I am meant to be back on ferrous fumarate but only once a day but still can't tolerate taking even one tablet. Actively monitored every 3 months.
October 2017 FERRITIN 47 (30 - 400)
Diagnosed folate deficient in 2015, taking folic acid once a week.
October 2017 FOLATE 2.3 (2.5 - 19.5)
Diagnosed vitamin D deficient in 2012 and prescribed 800iu. Was told by a private nutritionist this wasn't enough and recommended I take 3000iu Better You sublingual spray. Follow up testing every 6 months. Have doubled the dosage to 6000iu since March 2015 because 3000iu still wasn't raising it. I don't go out in the sun because I get cold easily and I am sensitive to the sun.
June 2017 TOTAL 25 OH VITAMIN D 66.3 (50 - 75 VITAMIN D MAY BE SUBOPTIMAL, AND LONG-TERM MAY LEAD TO CLINICAL EFFECTS. ADVISE ON SAFE SUN EXPOSURE AND DIET. SUPPLEMENTATION MAY BE INDICATED)
Given B12 injections for low B12 symptoms, result before injection
June 2017 VITAMIN B12 285 (190 - 900)
