Would low ferritin but hemoglobin of 9.3 cause higher resting heart rate? Cardiologist said hearts ok. Slightly hypothyroid. Have thyroid antibodies.
Having nausea, fatigue, dry skin, etc. Had thyroid test TSH 4.290& T4 1.15 & ferritin 5, hemoglobin 9.6, vitamin d 11. Would low dose thyroid med help?

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
