I posted a few days ago but never got a reply so I'm trying again as I would really appreciate some opinions on my blood tests. I'm new to all this and feeling a bit overwelmed and overloaded with information.
I finally got a print out of all my recent test results. My doctor says all my vitamins/minerals are within range however I feel a few may be on the lower range of normal.
Im currently taking 250mcg of vitamin b12 oral spray and eating foods high in B12. I've been severely unwell through all this and lost almost 3 stone in weight (now 7st 12 and hardly eating due to low appetite and anxiety so could be part diet that I'm low. I also suffer with gut problems/food intolerances. However since starting levo my appetite is better and I'm eating better. I may increase this dose as I realise its probably unlikely to help however I'm cautious as I read b12 and b complex can cause anxiety which I already suffer with.
I had to test privately for my vitamin D results as doctor won't test. Hoping I will get my results next week.
I started levo on 18th May 25mg and was increased to 50mg after my second lots of blood tests which I started 19th June.

Thank you in advance for your help. This site has been a wealth of knowledge since I've been diagnosed and having somewhere to turn for advice is very much appreciated. I'm so desperate to get well but feel I'm on my own. Doctor seems happy to give me levo and leave me to it x
