    low iron and ferritin levels

    what can happen if your iron and ferritin levels never increase? what effects does this have on your other vital organs and body functions?

    Re: low iron and ferritin levels

    janie13--Welcome to the boards!

    Then you would require IV iron therapy to bring your levels up to normal range. Also, blood transfusions or both. Because as a result of low iron and ferritin you eventually become anemic. The longer the anemia goes undetected or treated the more severe it may become.

    If you have long term moderate to severe anemia it would then effect your organ function over a long period of time. The end result is organ damage. FLFG
