My ferritin results came back a 9.
I went to a special wellness center for fatigue, weakness, breathlessness, heart palpitations, lack of mental focus, blurry vision, hair loss- to name a few. Four pages of blood test results were within normal range, [I]except [/I] the ferritin, yet my doctor chose to medicate me with thyroid drugs, progesterone and other hormones, etc. (I don't know why - his treatment caused me huge problems.) I finally quit doing what he said and I focused on the ferritin and getting my iron up. I felt 75% better within a matter of days. (I use Floradix)

An article I found said: A level of ferritin above 40 is considered normal. A level of ferritin between 15 and 40 is described as iron deficient and a level below 15 is described as iron depletion. The lower the ferritin level, even within the "normal" range, the more likely it is that the patient does not have enough iron.
