    Question Blood test help needed

    Blood test results show high ferritin but low Hg.

    57 year peri menapausal, cough for 20 weeks being treated for asthma. Took a 17 day course of Prednisone which cleared the cough completely then itís back - could this be connected to blood results. Feel a little nausea from time to time and a little tired some days.

    b12. 409
    Ferritin 271
    Haemoglobin 112
    MCV 76.80
    MCH 23.6
    MCHC 308
    RDW 18.3

    With high ferritin, but anemia on the low side should I take iron tablets? What should be the next step.
