    Could dizziness be from Low Iron Saturation ONLY? (non anemic iron deficiency)

    Hi Everyone:

    I am so confused. All my other blood works is okay... I am low normal range for all other red blood cell related tests but I am SUPER low on Iron saturation (6% and I used to be 41%), Ferritin of 18, Iron level of 24 (used to be 130).

    I am light headed and dizzy all day along with hair loss, poor concentration.

    BUT my doctor said dizziness shouldn't be a sign of if iron saturation low is all there is and not low in RBC or Hemog tests. I was hoping taking iron will heal me but I guess not? I can't function all day because I am light headed ALL DAY LONG. HELP!

    Your ferritin is low also. Are you still dizzy? I am also dizzy all the time optimal ferritin is about 80
