    Low Ferritin & High Glucose

    My 21 year old son has become ill and had to drop out of school because of referred pain in his mouth. We have just received the results of some blood tests back and his hemoblobin, hematocrit and Ferritin are low (Ferritin is 12). His glucose is high--as is his absolute eosinophils. He is exhausted, depressed, losing weight. We've seen several doctors, but don't have a diagnosis--any suggestions would be welcomed.

    Re: Low Ferritin & High Glucose

    I'm sorry that your son is ill and you are having such hard times. It is unusual for a male to be anemic. There are so many reasons that it could be. I think that you have to leave it up to the specialists. The wonderful thing that you have on your side is that you are in Gainesville. The doctors and hospital there are a blessing for you and your son. Recently I had to take my 26 yr old son there to get a diagnosis. They are very good, if you have a problem that's where you want to be. Keep us posted. FLFLOWERGIRL
