Hi, new to forum....in 1994 I had a sub total Thyroidectomy, due to goitre that was huge, never needed Thyroxine as levels seems normal....so over the years I've had regular Thyroid blood tests.....I'm also B12 deficient, Vit D deficiency, very low serum Ferritin levels usually 5, so have Iron Infusions every three months,as it drops back to 5 or 3 again......I've got Regrowth on the little bit of Thyroid they left after my op In 1994, biopsies always clear.......had my usual blood test last week, saw GP yest and he to,d me I'm Borderline Over Active...shocked tbh, he checked my Thyroid and felt more nodules, so being referred urgently........havnt got TSH levels to show you what I am, will get them printed off from Doctors.........always had thick hair, over last 8 months, hair is thinning,major difference in thickness, lose a lot of hair, thought that bit was normal, so my question is.....do others here that have Thyroid probs also have B12 deficiency,Serum Ferritin levels low like mine,Hair loss ? GP said I don't need Thyroxine..yet......as levels of TSH isn't so low...thing is, if anything, I've always been in the Under Active or Borderline Under Active levels, so how can I now be Borderline Over Active now ? Don't make sense to me..........I also have Infammatory Arthritis and suffer with severe Intestine problems that I'm currently being helped with, also have thickening of the bowel..... And recently cleared of Lymphoma as CT Scans shows enlarged Lymph nodes in stomach,.....anyway...any info would be great....also I must admit,I do get confused with Hyper and Hypothyroidism...what one have I got ? Also willI end up with true Over Active Thyroid, as it's Borderline now? ?....... Maybe they will remove the lot this time around, as I can see and feel the regrowth.....I have also had Acromegaly in past ,which I didn't know about, until my hands and feet grew, then it stopped...luckily for me, Consultant said it can appear and it can go on its own, they don't understand why!
Thanks in advance
