I am a cancer doctor. your hemoglobin and hematocrit levels are low.
you need blood testing to check your iron levels and ferritin levels and also B12 and folate levels.
low B12 or low folate can also cause low hemoglobin levels.
you need your stools checked as well. bleeding from your stools or from your monthly periods can cause low hemoglobin.
you need repeat blood tests in 1-2 months to check on your platelet levels to make sure they come up a bit. platelets of 112 are a bit low.
papillary thyroid cancer should be treated with a total thyroidectomy surgery to remove your thyroid gland.
this will also help your hashimotos thyroiditis since your thyroid gland will be removed and won't be able to get inflamed anymore.
has your doctor referred you to see a surgeon for the thyroid surgery?
