As some of you know, I have been struggling to get my ferritin up. In the last 2 years it's been the lowest at 8 and highest at 38.

My latest results show my ferritin to be 103!!! Up from 19 in September. I am not sure I believe it. That is a really big jump especially since I've been struggling to raise it. I've been taking ferrous sulphate 1x per day with 500 mg of Vitamin C and L-Lysine for absorption.

THIS IS WHERE I'M CONFUSED...

My serum iron was 21 (flagged as low) and my TIBC was 200 (flagged as low). I have been on the iron regime for 3 months and stopped the iron supplements for 7 days before my blood work.

Other numbers seemed like they might be lowering into anemia again, but thought I might ask you experts here...

RBC 4.2 (4.2-5.4 M/uL)

Hemoglobin 12.6 (12.0-16.0 g/dL)

Hematocrit 38.2 (37-47%)

MCH 30
MCHC 33

Transferrin Saturat 11 (11-46%)


Why is my serum iron so low, but ferritin so high?? In September, my iron was 48 and my ferritin was 19.

Can someone offer any words of wisdom?
