Hi Gemini - yes it does appear that your immune system would be improving as even your lymphocytes have improved.

Your B12 has dropped. Were you taking B12 before and stopped or you have never taken it? Your folate has dropped a bit too, this would likely be due to you not absorbing as much B12 as your body would ideally like. Some people take a B12 and folate supplement together, although a lot of the brands of multi B vitamins already appear to have a little folate in them. Not sure whether the B12 ones do.

Good on your receptionist for advising you to keep up with the iron supplements. You have moved up, but it's not rocketing up. See in 3 months how you go, but make certain your ferritin is up nice and high at least 50 if not 70. The higher your ferritin the better other functions within the body can operate and if you can push it up to 125 and stay there, that is the optimum level for your phase 2 liver detox. That's the one which is important for women and men as this level of detox gets rid of excess estrogen, rather than storing it, among other things.

Raising your ferritin is also beneficial for the thyroid. Long term low levels of ferritin can affect the thyroid.

I dont recall, were you taking vitamin D too? Often when you are low in so many things you are also most likely low in Vit d.

I'm not certain about your thyroid results eg; your T4 lab range is just a little different to my range so i'd not like to comment incase i'm on the wrong track :) I see they didn't test your T3 and they didn't run the test to check whether you had an autoimmune thyroid condition by running a Thyroid Antibodies test. Often they wont run this test if your TSH appears "normal", which is a mistake as a lot of people can fall into the "normal" range, yet have an autoimmune thyroid condition all along. This was my case and that's how i went without treatment for 9 years and i'd had Hashimoto's all along. Your thyroid TSH is in the normal range at 1.28, doctors wont do anything even if it climbs higher, unless it goes over the lab range.
Thanks Audrey :) I am very thankful for your comments you are teaching me alot.

I have not been taking B12, i tried to get some but none of the chemists had any yesterday, which i found odd :confused: so i may have to order over the internet.

I am taking 2 iron tablets now a day and my stomach seems ok for now. So i hope to up that next week back to 3 x.

I had a google of the liver detox phase 2, that was interesting another piece of the jigsaw ;) and how it relates to oestrogen and therefore possibly things like endometriosis etc and also how long term low ferritin can affect the thyroid...:dizzy: gosh lots of info my head feels like it will explode thinking about all of those intertwining things, very complex

I wish they would have done a vit D and liver function test but i suppose they have a budget and only do the cheapest tests needed :rolleyes:
Perhaps i should take vitamin D too but i dont know anything about taking that yet?

Re the black floaty things, I had an eye check within the last year as i wear contact lenses so i think if there were any problems it would have been picked up.
