In Reply to: Re: low ferritin level posted by Jean on July 04, 1999 at 13:28:17:

: : i was diagnosed with the ferritin level of four .i would like to know y ferritin levels drop so low?and what , xact symptoms a person suffers, although i ve been told to take iron suppliments , they have not been effective Is there another alternative. can the level be improved through, diet alone.Plz reply.Thankyou.

: I also had last year low ferritin levels but they
: were undetectable at the time and hemoglobin at 7.5.
: Since that time, my doctor has put me on Infed
: injections. I had to take 30 to bring my levels
: back up. Now I take Infed injections every three
: or four months. I can not tolerate oral iron
: supplements, as they make me sick (vomit) to the
: point of dehydration. So if your iron supplements
: aren't working, why don't you suggest to your doctor
: about Infed injections (iron injections). If he
: doesn't agree find a hematologist. That who is
: treating me.
