Re: Ferritin of 8?
Jun 28, 2009
Mandy mine is 17 and is low. My DR has put me back on Pallifer Iron supplements. I was taking them for 3 months and had finished the 1st prescription and just didn't go to the DR-well from when I stopped until a month later when I got re-tested I was so weak, breathless, my arms and legs were like rubber and my right leg ached at night and I was in a fog. I have started iron again 2 weeks ago and I am actually beginning to have more energy and becoming less breathless and my legs have stopped aching. I have to get tested to see if I am bleeding in my stomach somewhere to make my ferritin so low.

A level of 2 and the Dr says it is ok-I would maybe ask him again. How do you feel physically & mentally at 2? maybe that is a level good for you, I don't know much about it other than I got called to come in ASAP after my lab results showed 17.
