Basically I had a baby 6 months ago, (sept12) and since Xmas have felt gradually shocking.
Weight gain despite dieting - 20 lbs since Xmas. ( I am overweight as well as latest weight gain)
Drowsy tiredness and heavy eyes despite upto 10 hours sleep
Major hair loss
Carpal tunnel syndrome
Feel cold when every be else says its warm
Cracked tongue (middle)
I am almost 40, have Crohn's disease which is in remission and no medication. My mum has underactive thyroid and said I look unwell.
I went to my gp and she did bloods, not all back yet but here are the ones I have so far;
TSH - 1.4 (0.20-4.00)
Free T4 -12.7 (10.00-20.00)
T3 not taken
TPO - not back yet
Ferritin - 14 (10.00-322.00)
Serum folate - 3.3 (5.40-24.00)
I had a call the day after the bloods were taken to say I need to take 2 x210mg iron tablets and have to go for blood test tomorrow for repeat serum folate.
Ay help or advice would be very welcome, I just want to feel well, loose weight and have some energy
