There is a reason for low iron that has to be determined. Your doctor is ruling out things that may be using up your iron. The common reason for lower iron in females is usually due to heavy periods. Colonoscopy, Endo, Small bowel are all (standard) and done to R/O reasons.

A normal ferritin level is 10-232 (this is the iron storage), different labs have different ranges. Normal would be in range, although, a healthy level is 70-100.

Iron Serum level range is 40-170 which is the circulating iron in the blood. This changes be eating meals and taking supplements. It is not a good indicator of how much iron you have in your body for use, the Ferritin is used for that measurement.
