Hi everyone, I'm feeling fairly desperate! Can anyone please help? Just been to see my GP. He says my ferritin of 33 is fine, that no-one has a ferritin level of 70. When I protested he said to take a multivitamin with iron in it. I've been a vegetarian for over forty years which may have something to do with it. Will the 14 mg of iron typically in a multi be of any value? If not, what amount would you recommend, bearing in mind i am post menopausal?
The other worrying thing is that he considers my tsh of 3 [0.5 - 4.4] to be fine too. I gave him Professor Toft's article with the relevant part highlighted. He dismissed it! When pressed, he has increased my Levothyroxine by 12.5 mcg daily.
The only good thing to come out of the appointment was that he agreed to the test for thyroid antibodies when I next have my tsh measured.
Has anyone got any advice for me please.
Thanks for all your help and support. I think I'd feel really frantic if I didn't have all you experts to call on. This journey is just so very depressing .
