Default TSH and keto and ferritin question

So I just got my new labs after being off keto for a few months or at the least not very strict and my thyroid TSH has gone from a 2 to 9! When I did this a year or more ago and did so diligently my TSH went so that I had to lower my thyroid meds twice to get it back in range because I had become HYPER from HYPO. Also my ferritin level is high! Itís 299 and should not be above 150 so not sure if that has anything to do with keto?? Any thoughts on this fun stuff?!

when u lowered your thyroid meds twice to get it back in range, you could have over compensated (2 to 9 TSH). you may need to elevate med a little to bring it under 5
