Re: Low Ferritin
Mar 19, 2007
[QUOTE=steph4477;2863122]My level is 2 and I work 11 hours a day. I am extremely productive during the day but at night and on weekends I am pooped![/QUOTE]

My ferritin level was 3. My doctor began me on Venofer once a week for 8 weeks. If it doesn't improve by then, I'm scheduled for a bone marrow. I'm already scheduled for a gastric scope and colonoscopy to check for hidden bleeding. I do fine all day, however when I get home I sit and sit until bedtime. My get up and go has got up and gone by 5 pm.:yawn:

Kathy5am, Hope that the bone marrow test goes well. Why didn't your doctor do a iron dextran infusion? Have you ever done that? Did it not work? I just had my first one last week and just now have started to feel OK. It really knocks you for a loop! Do you have heavy cycles? How did your levels get so low. Stephanie

I was having heavy cycles. They thought that might be the problem. I had a pelvic ultrasound which showed endometrial problems and fibroids so I had a hysterectomy. That was three months ago. My level has dropped even more and I'm not have periods anymore. What is the iron dextran infusion. The venofer was given by IV. The doctor's are looking for hidden bleeding now. Colonoscopy Thursday.
