While 19 is low, it is not necessarily deficiency. The most liberal standard I have found is in the area of Clinical Nutrition, which puts deficiency at below 20 ferritin. Many other mainstream studies, including hematology are lower.

That is not to say that you might not feel better at a higher level. Do you have any older records that demonstrate a pattern where you had a consistently higher ferritin?

You may want to look into a potential thyroid condition if you have not already. Some hypothyroid people have low ferritin, are deficient or anemic too. It can account for hair loss, heavy periods as well as other well-known symtoms like faitigue, dry skin, muscle aches, etc. :cool:
