[QUOTE=littlebunnyfoo;3684119]Hi Audrey,

Thanks for your input! My folate and B12 are high. Vit. D is on the low end, but not below normal. I have no idea about iodine.

My tsh levels look pretty good. My tsh level was higher this winter 3.6 I think, but has since gone down to 1.6 (I'm not on any thyroid meds). T4 and T3 were also normal - I did see the numbers. Antibodies were negative. Maybe I have a fluctuating thyroid? or maybe a fluctuating thyroid within 2 points is normal?

Anyway, you think it is something more than just my periods making it difficult for me to raise ferritin? I can't imagine what else I could possibly be tested for! If you know of something, please let me know![/QUOTE]

I also though it was my period, because every doctor told me so. But now I have not had a period for 8 months. In Jan. after three infusions, my ferritin was 89. June it was 63 and now Aug. it was 36. I am back to my infusions again. My hematologist does not know what is causing my ferritin to drop even thou I have not had a period. He think now it could be hormones or something. Of course it it something but what. I think mine could be part hypo thyroid and my meds are not correct even thou my labs are normal. Problem is they don't like to run the Free T4 and Free T3 because of the cost.

You my want to see an gastro guy to see if there is a problem in your stomach. I had H-plyori twice and I know that can cause problems with iron absorption. I guess I should check with my gastro for another endoscopy.
