blood levels etc.

Post by Polar Bear »

My general practitioner did bloods, while I await to see a neurologist.
The readings are:
thyroid - serum 12.6 and TSH 0.93
B12s - 364 (normal is it seems is anywhere between 175 - 750)


Doc says these are all normal. I know nothing about levels and haven't yet researched what is 'normal levels'.
Does anyone have any comment on the levels??
thanks, Betty

Hi Betty How soon will you be seeing your neurologist? I would bring the readings to him to be sure everything is correct. I know when I had my thyroid tested my readings were 1.69 and the range was between 0.45 - 4.50

I am sure other members will post and give you some info too.

Good luck to you and let us know how it went with your neurologist.

Have a good day

Betty, you need to post the lab's range - each lab is different. . .
