    Re: Very low ferritin, moderate anemia?

    Just an update...

    I had repeat blood work last week. My iron levels are going up, I'm almost not anemic now. :-) My ferritin has gone from 1 to 3--so also increasing! My reticulocyte count is very low though. I'm hoping this turns around at the next blood draw in 6 weeks. Also, my vitamin d was low, consistent with celiac disease, which I just found out (officially) that I have. I had my biopsy on Tuesday and the office called a few hours ago to say it was positive. On the bright side, there is a cause for all of this that can be treated and will hopefully get better with a new diet.

    Stephanie
