I had a colonoscopy a couple of weeks back. Found 2mm and 13 mm polyp. Doctor had me have lab work done to check on all blood levels. Hemaglobin and hematocrit were a little low, BUT the ferritin was really low.

I go in for an endoscopy in 1.5 weeks, to check for any bleed or anything else.

This is new to me. Is there any concern here, as long as all checks out good with the endoscopy? Will I be able to raise ferritin levels with supplements alone?? Thanks for any help or suggestions.

Also, I do donate platelets about every 2-3 weeks in the winter, and maybe once every 6-8 in the other seasons. And not necessarily a vegetarian, but the only meat that I eat is ground turkey maybe once per week. Very few other meats at all.

Picture of lab results.
