I have been under treatment for several years for IDA and now just iron deficiency, ferritin keeps dropping, last level 21 and month before was 72. My Hgb also continues to rise. How can my hgb levels rise and my ferritin drop? I did ask the nurse why the infusion when my hgb is on the rise, she said since I was very anemic, the doctor would like to keep my ferritin above 50 so I don't get anemic again.

I continue to get iron infusion whenever my ferritin goes below 50. My question is, can I also have Folate and Vitamin B12-Deficiency along with low ferritin. Thus contributing to me feeling still tired and legs muscles aching when I climb the stairs. With all the blood testing, no doctor even suggested me getting my folate or b-12 levels. Should I be asking for that to be done?

My last lab results shows continued rise in MCV levels, this month 104 and month before 100, and before that 89.

Or is my MCV levels high because of my low ferritin?
