[QUOTE=jasmin_a;3208052]what are the symptoms and causes of low ferritin?
Looking for answers.[/QUOTE]
There are no physical symptoms of low ferritin. However low ferritin can lead to anemia and those general symptoms are fatigue, cold skin, pale for your normal skin color, black under eyes like makeup almost, cravings for starch or non-food items, difficulty in balance, loss of appetite generally. There are more but the ones I quoted seem to be universal to anemia.

There is some information out there that indicates that very low ferritin (without anemia present) can cause symptoms. But is is variable and not yet widely accept by the medical community in the U.S. Of the material that I have read, it seems that countries like the U.K., Australia, etc. are more open to the suggestions that iron deficiency without anemia (low ferritin) can impact general well-being. I think there were studies done to show that female athletes did not perform as well with a low ferritin.
