Re: B12?
Oct 1, 2009
What you need to do is keep at it with the iron supplements. It's taken me over 3 years to get from 8 to 89 with quite a lot of set backs along the way. I can't afford to go a day without my iron supplements.

Secondly, are you on sublingual B12? That is the surest way to get your numbers up and i think FLFLOWERGIRL made that suggestion to you ages ago.

Thirdly, no, TSH is not a thyroid panel test and TSH is useless in most cases. My TSH was normal for 9 years and i had Hashimoto's the whole time.

For thyroid you must request this: TSH, Free T3, Free T4 and Thyroid Antibodies. You actually need to say that you want these specific test to your doctor. Dont just walk in and say you want a thyroid panel test or a thyroid test as all they ever do then is a TSH test and nothing else.

With your ferritin being up to 37 you should be feeling much better, but if there are other things which are low, such as your B12, or thyroid issues, that can be causing your recurring symptoms. B12 tablets or multi B tablets wont do the trick. You need sublingual B12 to get anywhere fast.

Have you checked your vitamin D levels? they are likely low too.

Have you had a gluten intolerance test as a lot of people appear to be intolerant to gluten and that also causes havoc with ferritin and other things.
