Re: New here and would welcome your experienced input

LPF--there's no disputing you have autoimmune thyroid disease. I would just like to point out that your very low ferritin and above-range RDW verifies that you have iron deficiency anemia. With that, you may have trouble tolerating the thyroid meds. It might be better for you to really work on building your iron levels up before you embark on too much thyroid meds. It's possible alot of your symptoms are related to the iron anemia alone.
