My dr. is sending me to a specialist for celiac diagnostic work-including an endoscopy. There are a number of factors that concern the dr. -testing positive on one celiac blood test (other 3 negative) low vit.d despite supplementation and low ferritin. For the ferritin she is having me take slow fe 47.5 mg ferrous sulfate 1x a day for 3 months.

My ferritin is 38 and the lab report showed female mean is 52ng/ml. So, when I look over the board here it seems that people with anemia have a much much lower number. If someone with experience would be so kind as to share their opinion, I would appreciate it. My doctor seems concerned-of course there are a number of other things going on and to be checked out. But, could someone comment on the 38ng/ml where lab indicates mean of 52ng/ml. I am post-meno so no periods accounting for this. And, I am a vegetarian. Is the 38 what would be termed deficiency?Thank you.
