Can someone tell me if low ferritin inhibits the body’s conversion of T4 to T3?
I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism a little over a year ago and I am currently taking T4. Despite taking T4 my T3 levels have not increased. My hair fall is so bad it’s depressing, even my eyebrows have thinned. My Endo checked my iron and ferritin which were both low so my Endo put me on iron tablets.
I am now seeing a different Endo as I have changed locations and my iron levels are high, so they have stopped the iron tablets. The problem is my ferritin is only just in range and my hair is still falling out badly.
I understand that high iron levels aren’t good for you so want to know how else can I get my ferritin up without taking iron tablets?
I really want to reduce the hairfall and try to help the T4 to T3 conversion issue.
Appreciate any help! Thanks.
