Low H and Ferratin but no symptoms??
About 3 months ago a blood test for something else found I had a Haemaglobin of 10.7 and a ferratin of 11.6 and a trip to the doctor resulted who told me to try and eat more iron rich foods and Vit C.
I did for a short while but as I felt as healthy, fit, active and awake etc as ever I did not pay it much concern.
A recent re-check produces results of 10.6 and 9.8 and they are concerned that it has gone down.
I have started to try and do more in the way of better foods (though tbh as we eat all organic, grow your own anyway I have a pretty good diet and in 43 years of being veggie have never had any issues before).
I cant take supplements of any kind without being horribly ill - but otherwise feel fine - although perhaps not quite as full of energy as I did say 20 years ago . . but then it is mid-winter.
My questions are:
why dont I have any symptoms if its a seriously low iron etc level?
Is there anything one can do that doesnt involve endless weetabix or supplements that make you feel ill? (I did ask the doctor but she had no idea)
