've just started my low iodine diet, a few weeks after a TT for papillary carcinoma. Just received the results from a test done two weeks after the op. From my position of not much knowledge it looks like I'm deficient in b12, possibly anemic.
I'm on 150mcg of Levo daily, and the oncologist has advised me to stay on it during the RAI, which is to be as an outpatient.
I'm currently still experiencing fatigue, rotten sleep, occasional tingling/pins and needles in my arms, my tinnitus has increased and my thinking gets pretty woolly. I think most of these could be b12 related?
Anyway, any thoughts on the results would be great, especially the very high ferritin score. TIA.
Free T3 - 4.0 pmol/L. (2.6 - 6.1)
Free T4 - 15.3 pmol/L (9 - 19)
TSH - 0.35 mu/L (0.35 - 4.94)
Thyroglobulin - <0.7 ug/L (0 - 40)
Anti-thyroglobulin antibodies <20.0 ku/L (0 - 40)

Serum folate - 4.8 ug/L (3 - 20)
Ferritin - 927.0 ug/L (15 - 300)
There are a raft of others, mostly near the mid ranges. These four stand out.

RDW - 11.3 %CV (11.6 - 14)

Hope someone can help me make sense of this!
