Had a recent blood test about 7 weeks ago as part of my Doctor's general screening of people over 35 years and the lab results highlighted a couple of things...
Serum Folate - low - deficiency - 3ug/l
Mean Corpusc Haemoglobim - low - 25.9pg
I have been exhausted, foggy minded, irritable etc for months now but have put this down to having an ileostomy which disturbs my sleep as well as still having daily blood loss from what's left of my colon thanks to Ulcerative Colitis, having a chronic cough which is exhausting and of course all the general life stuff like having a child, job, housework etc.
My doctor has not recalled me over these results I just requested a copy for my own interest but I have started taking 5mg folic acid supplement but have no idea if that would be enough to raise it sufficient given my existing medical condition.
Anyone got any ideas if these results are significant or not?
Many thanks in advance :-)
