My son has Hashimotos for which he is taking 100 Levothyroxine - had recent dose increase, next bloods due in a couple of weeks.
As he's still feeling exhausted a lot of the time he's compared his vitamin results from Medichecks and can see that his folate has remained the same over the last 6 months 20 (3-50) and his ferritin has dropped from 140 (30-400) in May to 96 (30-400) in September.
In September he started taking 5 (not sure of measurement) folic acid but didn't address the ferritin. Is anyone able to give us some guidance as to what he could take to increase his ferritin levels and should he be taking more folic acid?
On another note his Endo has referred him for a short synacthen test which he has on 15th December. I've googled this and can see its to do with cortisol levels and wondered if they might be testing him for Addisons??
Many thanks for your help
