I am 33 years old south Asian male. I was diagnosed with HypoThyroid in 2007 and since then I am taking synthroid. Now it is 125 mcg. I have low Testosterone in the range of 140 since diagnosed in 2008. Now I have found that I have low ferritin of 57. We have a family history of Fatty Lever. Recently I went out of Country and Doctor gave me Iron IV. This lead to my testosterone go to 430 first time in life when ferritin reported 315. But now within 3 months. Ferritin came from 1200 to 315 to 150 and testosterone came to same old levels. My current Copper is 98 ug/dL and Ceruloplasmin is 23.7 and Urinary copper is 5.2ug/L range is 15 - 60.
I read a doctment somewhere that Ceruloplasmin 22.9 or low is deficient.
I have extreme Fatigue. Hairloss, Poor memory, Lack of Motivation, cannot concentrate, White Hair, Doctors push me for testosterone but I am not interested as this is not the cure. WHen I showed the local Haepatology department with the results about copper. They stopped responding. My Zinc was reported High. 164 ug/dL. After Iron IV my TSH came in control to 4 from 9 and Endo doc reduced the synthroid to 50 mcg.
I suspect copper Deficiency which is very common in the country I belong and my family. Is there any one who is /was in the same situation.
I am looking for a doctor who gives Copper IV or anyway to boost ceruloplasmin.
Is it true that Copper deficiency leads to Iron Deficiency in the body.
