Hello and thank you for asking!
Sorry to learn about your bothersome situation.
Are you actually treating the under active thyroid and anemia?
When did you check the thyroid hormones lately?
If you haven't check them for more than 6 months i would suggest the below exams:
-CBC (Complete Blood Count, also known as Hemogram; includes Hemoglobin, WBC and Platelet counts)
-Electrolytes (Sodium and Potassium in particular)
-Liver function tests (SGOT , SGPT, Albumin, Bilirubin, Alkaline Phosphatase)
-Kidney function tests (BUN, Creatinine)
-TSH (checks your thyroid)
-Free T4 (this too checks your thyroid)
-25 hydroxy Vitamin D levels (ideal range 40 to 60 ng/ml = 100 to 150 nmol/liter)
-Calcium

Please inform also for the levothyroxine dose you are taking.
Will be a pleasure to help you further.

Kind regards,
Dr.Mirjeta
