From last week's lab work, my Ferritin was 25 (15-150 range) and my serum Iron was 184 (27-159 range). I know that the iron is really high. My ferritin has always been been around that number, but my iron has previously been normal. My Hemoglobin was 12.5 (11.1-15.9 range).
I'm 27 and have been on Synthroid since 2010. I got my lab work done last week as I was concerned about recent symptoms. I've had a lot of hair loss and some weight gain. More importantly, I've had really late periods. I used to be able to set my calendar on ~30 day cycles, except when my med levels needed to be adjusted, but the last couple of months, it's been 2-3 weeks late. My TSH came back normal, so my endo pretty much said that I must be stressed as my hypothyroidism is being properly treated.
How exactly do I proceed? I'm not sure what exactly the excess iron means. I would appreciate any advice as I'm pretty perplexed. I'm not even sure what additional blood work I should request to figure out the problem.
