I'm desperately hoping that some of you can possibly help me. I'm a 55 year old guy who is struggling with fatigue ,palpitations and problems with my balance. I struggle to walk in a straight line and feel weak. I feel as though I'm going to pass out - although this has never happened.
My GP has recently arranged for a whole lot of blood tests to be done. Here are the results of those that I feel will be of interest to you :-
T.S. H. 4.18 (0.30-5.00miu/L)
25-OH Vitamin D 50.1 (50.00-250.00nmol/L
Serum Vitamin B12 398(170.00-730.00ng/L
Serum Ferritin 59 (22.00-322.00ug/L)
Serum Folate 9.6 (3.00-19.00ug/L
Serum Iron Level 19.2 (8.00-32.00umol/L
Saturation Iron Binding Capacity 72.2umol
Unsaturated Iron Binding Cap 53 (27.80-53.70umol/L
Transferrin Saturation Index 27 (20.00-50.00%
Over the past years my TSH has constantly been jumping outside of the higher end of the range and then appears to come back inside the range again. My GP has said that this is normal and does not suggest, at this stage, that treatment is necessary. He claims that the TSH would need to show a couple of consecutive readings at 10 or above.
I am really at the end of my tether with all of this and feel I can't go on much longer with these horrible symptoms.
In the past I was referred to a rheumatologist (for an unrelated problem) who arranged for some bloods to be done. He established that my Vitamin D levels were very low and instructed my GP to prescribe Invita D3 800 unit capsules (1×daily) on a long-term basis. I have been taking this for at least 5 or 6 years now.
I really would appreciate any help you can give me. Should you require any additional information please let me know.
