    Ferritin count

    Is 15.8 a low ferritin count? I know it is normal but low. How do I make this # go up?

    Yes, it is low. Just today, my doctor told me that 20 is still too low and he likes to see everyone at least at a 50. You can make it increase my taking iron supplements. And it takes a long time.
