I have had a lot of problems with my iron and ferritin levels lately also my dr says normal ferritin levels are usually between 15-150 and mine is 1 he says though that a low normal ferritin level can be deceptive though because if your hematocrit is low and you have a low normal range than you ferritin would still be considered low. Your ferritin level is your stored iron level the iron kind of your back up iron that means if your ferritin level is low than you body is dipping into your stores to try and keep up. Not good in case something happens as it can cause excessive bleeding. I do not know why your dr would not have you take iron supplements as they can help build this up not neccesarily mask things since your body obviously needs help with this my dr said if I can't get it up with iron supplements he would do injections and they hurt. I have had multiple tests and no real answer yet for the anemia.
