Re: Low Ferritin
Mar 24, 2007

It's awesome to hear that I am not alone. I just got my blood results back and have a ferritin level of 3. I have been trying to lose weight...since at least last January, but have been unsuccessful. Low energy...I blamed it on my job...or being unfit...I just found it agonizing to try and get a workout in after work. And felt so guilty for not going. The mental anguish has been tough. I thought I was just depressed.

I'm not sure where this could have come from...My periods are light. Maybe some of you could share your insight on possible causes. Other than this I am healthy. I think...

This message board is interesting to find. About 6 months ago some lab tests came back with me at a 4.8 ferretin level and normal mcv, and rbc. So I started taking iron supplements, drinking a little apple cider vinegar before eating (to help the stomach acid levels in order to break down the iron) and soaking all my grains and beans before cooking them (helps nutritionally and with the breakdown). My new lab results have come back with my ferritin level down to a .86. No noticable abnormal bleeding. I've been fatigued for as long as I can remember. Out of breath alot now. Anyhow, I'm obviously now on a quest to solve this mystery.
