Could Levothyroxine affect my iron?

Just got my labs back and I'm trying to figure out what is going on and if it has something to do w/my Hoshimotos.  I'm currently on 50mcg of Levothyroxene.  Have been on this for a couple of years now.  My TSH was never above 4.  Here's what my labs were Ferritin 6; % saturation 13; monocytes 166 and RDW 16.6.  I'm ready to become a vegan.  I've gained 20 lbs since Novebmer, i've lost about 6.  I'm also 50 w/regular cycle.

What are the reference ranges on the tests you posted?  Ranges vary lab to lab and have to be posted with results.

Please also post current thyroid lab results.

Why are you ready to become a vegan?  

Do you have thyroid symptoms?

Do you have Hashi's?
