Even though your ferritin is low--which indicates iron deficiency, you don't look to be anemic. I don't have your reference range for the hemoglobin, but I believe a 13.6 is on the low side of normal. While iron deficiency is important to be treated, the real danger is when you start getting into the anemia stages and you don't seem to be too bad off in that regard.

Try to take as much iron as you can tolerate. My ferritin was at a 5 and I was taking Spatone Iron + twice per day (this is readily available in Wales--I can no longer get it here in the States) and it is VERY gentle. Then I was also taking one children's chewable vitamin which contained ferrous fumerate. This is the *only* combo that did not upset my stomach and my ferritin has started to rise. I don't get checked again until November so I don't know how well it continues.
