20-220 is generally the accepted norms. My hematologist claims that levels between 10 and 20 are low but can still be considered in range. He's thrilled if I score an 8. I usually hover between 3-4. He explained to me that once the levels plunge below 10 unless you can replace them you will become anemic. Your body is pretty much out of iron at that point. Many, many women carry very low levels but as long as they are able to keep a balance between iron gain and iron loss anemia can be held at bay. I'm currently holding at a ferritin level of 4 but I'm not yet anemic. It's generally a slow process unless you have a clear source of blood loss.
