... mone treatment, much of my anxiety dissipated, but the fatigue remains. So, I revisited my medical records and saw that a recent FERRITIN value was 18, and SERUM B12 was 267.

... er surgery and were anemic in just a few months. That's why it's so important to supplement and check labs regularly. Also 30 is NOT normal for vitamin D for us. Optimal levels are 80. You can try the prescription, but it's D2 and oil based. We malabsorb oil, therefore we malabsorb D2. And even D3 in oil. You need DRY D3. ... (4 replies)
... Thanks for your story. From reading around here since I asked my question, I came to see that my serum b12 can be considered low. Unfortunately, drs I have seen, including a hematologist, strictly follow the current lab value wisdom and saw no problem. ... (12 replies)

... Ooops forgot to answer you thyroid optimum question. I have learned that good clinicians aim for a TSH around 1. It all depends, however, on the free t4 and t3 levels if they are in the just a bit above mid normal range. Of course, all that is really important is how you feel, even if the labs differ....

... My treating doctor also says 70+ ug/L and that is his goal for me and if possible 125-150 ug/L. The reason for these figures is based on studies done by Dr Hugh Rushton (based in Harley St, London) who has confirmed that ferretin is required to be 70+ and maintained at that level, or higher, for at least 3 months to effect a significant decrease in telogen shedding rate and...

But I'm still trying to deal with the iron as well, and get a ferritin level so I can work with that. ... (12 replies)
... I ran into the same kind of problem in that I suffer from Fibromyalgia, which has similar symptoms (apart from the not being able to breathe well thing) so I didn't think there was anything additionally wrong with me. Being diagnosed with Fibromyalgia sucks, but teh worst part is that if you have anything else that they can't figure out they think it's... (15 replies)

... at you post your thyroid labs on the thyroid board for advice. That's too confusing to me, although, your TSH looks good to me. The others might be too low for optimal health. ... (10 replies)
B12?

... Hi helpwanted, The first thing I would suggest is to get a copy of all your lab work results. Sometimes the doctors will say everything is within normal ranges and leave it at that, but your levels could be sub-optimal for you. It would be very helpful to have those numbers and then you could post them here and see if anything stands out. Your symptoms could be... (44 replies)
