Can anyone hel please?

Can anyone hel please?

Just had my results from my last blood test, I requested to have T3,T4,TSH Ferritin and Viamin D tested, for my forthcoming apointment with the hospital, in 2 weeks time.

My resuls are

TSH 2.2 2

T4 16.39

Folate 17.2

Ferratin 29 My T3 was requested by myself but the nurse at the GP said a docor would have to request that, so no result for this one. I was hoping to give the T3 hormone a try as I am feeling rather unwell and have been for a long while, Any help will be glady accepted.

Thank you

it has been a long time since i had my ferratin tested so this all from memory.... but i think 29 is low, i was 133 (i think)and that was fine. try to find out the reference range. that can make you feel lousy.

do some research

good luck

Ferritin needs to be over 70 to enable thyroid meds to be used....... try some iron supplements.

will this rev up the thyroxine and help with all the underlying symptoms?

well, it's thought that if your iron levels are low, the thyroid hormone can't get in to, or be used by the cells.

Thanks for this, interesting.

The only issue with me and Iron is, constipation which im sure lots of people can relate to also.

Thank you for this, the thyroid is a very complex organ.
