I have been diognosed with Folate deficiency.... I feel very tired, depressed, anxious, irritable, and lost a lot of weight can't think straight, my memory has gone poor.... My ferriton is 38.2, a year ago it was 70.3, my Zinc is 12.7, vitamin B12 is 244..... The last 19 months I have been on Antidepressants, as I had late bereavement (Husband) none of them did me any good, made me worse, the last antidepressant I was on was venlafaxine, was only on them 5 weeks, lost a lot of weight, so just come off them over 5 weeks, they have given me Diazepam 3 ml per day while i feel anxious.... I have lost 2 stone in the last 19 months, GP is sending me for a scan today to see why i am loosing so much weight,this was after I have never been away from his surgery. Spent a lot of money on a large thyroid test in Manchester UK, and that's were they found my Folate was 2.7... 19 months ago I was quite normal in weight and mind, just wanted counseling,as i felt quite sad over my loss, but because of the long wait with the NHS, they put me on AD's, went from bad to worse, but thought in the end there was an underlying issue.... would appreciate any help on my issues.... as I am so worried.... many thanks Hilary
