Hi I have just had some blood tests run as I have recently had some hair loss. I am waiting for my appointment with the gp to go over results but the receptionist did give me them and said my iron levels were a bit low.
My results are;

Serum ferritin 8ug/L
Haematocrit 37.5%
Red blood cell count 4.46
Mean corpusc haemoglobin 28.2
Red blood cell distribution 15.3%

Don't know if this means anything to anyone? If someone could give me an idea I would really appreciate it thanks!

Your results indicate you are on the borderline of anemia with low iron storage in liver. It is important to assess what might be causing this. Treating both the cause and supplementing your diet with iron should correct this in a few months. Your blood count will come up sooner than iron stores, which should be documented by follow up blood tests.
