Hypothyroidism And Low Iron Level
May be, may be not: Further evaluation is obviously needed. I can't say whether it is related or not without getting more information. In many cases- probably those two are not related. However in a case of colon cancer with metastatic disease to the liver- it can cause both increase of bilirubin level as well as low iron. Go to see your md and discuss further your condition. ...Read more
High iron serum-167, low ferritin-113.Cbc&cmp normal.Symptoms:fatigue and mild anxiety.Are symptoms of iron overload possible with low iron 'storage'?
What might cause high B12 levels? I also had low iron (long-standing anemia) and low vitamin D. CBC was normal except mildly low hemoglobin.
B12 normal range: There is no harm in an elevated B12 level. The normal range is established based on a population study, but the physiology and diet factors that might lead to higher levels than those in the population study are not significant. Don't worry about it in the least. Get follow-up to see that the hemoglobin comes back to normal though. ...Read more
Recent labs showed high platelets high iron high tibc low normal ferritin level of 12 is this iron deficiency ?
Likely: The best test for iron deficiency anemia (ida) is ferritin. Sometimes when there is inflammation (an possible associated anemia of chronic disease/inflammation, the ferritin may increase as an acute phase reactant). The "gold standard" for diagnosis is a bone marrow biopsy, but rarely needed. High platelets are also associated with ida. Treatment should improve platelets and ferritin. ...Read more

What is the optimal serum ferritin level for hair health? Can heavy periods and/or a vegetarian diet w/inadequate iron intake cause low ferritin level
See below: Ferritin levels are not associated with hair health. Heavy periods and vegetarian diet could lead to iron deficiency, and low serum ferritin. It can be easily addressed by taking oral iron and multivitamins. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
Stabilized by copper: In this case, the protein that becomes ceruloplasmin (called apoceruloplasmin) is more stable in the presence of copper. So low copper levels will cause a faster degradation of the protein that otherwise becomes ceruloplasmin. Additionally, unlike some proteins, there is no increased production of ceruloplasmin when copper levels are low, . ...Read more
Help!! What does it mean when you have low hemoglobin, low hemocrait, low mcv, low mch, low mchc high rdw, high iron binding capacity, low ferritin?
I have low ferretin levels as well as low transferrin levels. What is causing this low transferrin levels even though my iron stores are low?
And your question?: I'm not sure what you are asking. Yes, vit d deficiency can cause fatigue. It is easy to correct with 5-8000 iu of d3/day. B12 deficiency can be serious too- try 1000 mcg of sublingual b12/day ; if that does not help try injections. See http://bit.Ly/1fnt3ox ; http://bit.Ly/1607tg3 if fatigue persists after correcting then see a good doc to explore the many other possible causes of fatigue. ...Read more

Bleeding/blood loss- , malabsorption of iron in the stomach, or poor nutrition status/not enough intake of iron from the food could be the cause. Go to see your pmd and have more eval. If needed, referral to a hematologist can be done by pmd. ...Read more
