Like many medical things, i believe we are all individuals and a rare few might suffer the type of affects the rest of us wont have, so you can't exactly rule out that your low energy levels ect are not being caused a ferretin level of 25.

I know i suffered from extreme tiredness, low energy, no motivation etc when my levels were in their teens and then finally down to an 8. The only other time i had these same types of symptoms was when i had an overgrowth of candida in my stomach. Similar-ish symptoms are also experienced by certain people with thyroid conditions i believe.

My specialist is aiming for a minimum ferretin level of 70, but he would be even happier if i could hit 125 in the event that my iron begins to drop again. My big issue was my hair shedding and so i'm trying everything possible to boost my ferretin. Today i had my first of five iron injections and hopefully when i have my next blood test my ferretin will be sky high. The problem i can see is keeping it up there, which is necessary for a proper hair growth cycle to be developed.
