Ferritin question
Dec 19, 2008
Hi, I would just really like some other opinions. I have recently been experiencing hair loss which my specialist has diagnosed as low ferritin. My ferritin was originally 22 but I needed to get it over 70. So I have been taking 3 iron tablets per day, l-lysine and vit c for 5 months. I have also tried to change my diet to include more meat and veg.

After 3 months of taking the iron, my ferritin had gone up to 31. So when I was retested last week, I wasn't expecting it to have gone up much more. But to my suprise my ferritin came back at 165. I dont know what made it go up so high in 2 months when it had originally been so slow to rise.

I was wondering if somehow this could be a false reading? Does this sound normal?

Please let me know your opinion.

Many thanks for reading
