Quick question before tomorrow, please Midwest? Reece?

Hi Ladies,
I need to have you answer a quick question before my endo appt. tomorrow, please. I had my ferritin checked out because I read ion here it could cause hair loss, and I am losing a lot of hair right now, the Ferritin level came back from the lab marked LOW with the level at 5. I don't know if you can even answer my question about what it should be at, because I requested a copy of the lab results and there wasn't any range on it at all. Also, my calcium is at 7.4, the lowest it has been and the surgeon wants the endo to deal with the numbers because he said the endo would be the expert on the numbers. Well, tomorrow I actually see the PA in the endo office. Is the Ferritin extremely low? What are the symptoms of low ferritin? It kinda scared me cause I looked it up a little bit and then got off there, cause it said, quite often people with low ferritin have colon cancer.....got off. Could you ladies or someone knowledgeable about Ferritin answer if it is dangerously low???
Thank you, Lori { I thought I was feeling good...??}
