    Re: Low Ferritin

    I'm sure you already know this but most of your levels are not normal. Your ferrtin and iron and H and H are very low. What is your doctor suggesting for the next step? Please keep after him.

    Best wishes

    Re: Low Ferritin


    My ferritin level a few years ago was 3 and I felt awful. I did not know why I was feeling so bad until I had blood work done and I was anemic and ferritin was a 3. I went on slo-fe iron for awhile and my ferritin level built itself up after several months. Are you feeling really exhausted and drained and just not feeling well from your levels?
