I’ve just been started on thyroxine and I decided to pay for a medichecks thyroid screen to get a bit more information than the nhs tests give. It turns out my folate is just at the very bottom of the range despite having been taking folic acid for several years now as part of a multivitamin.
Could it be the hypothyroid causing this or is it the other way round? Has anyone else had a problem with folate despite supplementing?
For quite a while I was taking metafolin but at the moment I’m just having the folic acid in my multivitamin so maybe I should start the metafolin again.
