    Low Ferritin With Lyme Disease....

    Does anyone else have a low ferritin level and Lyme Disease? Is there a correlation between the two?

    Re: Low Ferritin With Lyme Disease....

    I have been taking 350mg of iron for 5 months now. My ferritin level has gone up from 6 to 20. So it is still in the below normal range(22-291). I have not been diagnosed with Lyme yet. I am anxiously awaiting a phone call from my primary care physician at Kaiser. I have requested to be tested for Lyme Disease and any other diseases that a tick may have transferred to me. I did have a bite from some sort of bug, but never did have a rash. Back then I didn't know that you could have Lyme Disease and not have the "Bulls-Eye Rash."

    HI,
    Yes, I have a low ferritin level.... it's 7. Are you taking iron? I was, but I think it was really messing my stomach up, along with the antibiotics....
