[QUOTE=lizzy76;3162125]I would not be alarmed that your ferriten level is at 5. Anyone who is actually anemic (as in low hemoglobin) will have basically no ferriten. Well, that's the case for iron defincieny anemia at least. I'm sure your doctor was not alarmed and did not mention this to you because he was probably expecting you to have no ferriten, this is nothing unusaul at all for people who are anemic. Your ferriten will start to rise once your hemoglobin is in the normal range. Until then your ferriten (iron stores) will be low.[/QUOTE]

I guess my question would be - I have managed to get my hemoglobin into the normal range, low 12's, but my ferritin is still low, around 5. So if my hemoglobin is going up, why wouldn't my ferritin go up?
