[QUOTE=Audrey-B;3874714]Ok, got my H-pylori test back and it's "negative". Back to square one in trying to figure out my big highs and lows!! Don't know what else to try, apart from getting back in and doing my exercises. Will see if that does the trick.[/QUOTE]

Audrey-- That's good news! You don't want that DX no matter what. Taking all those antibiotics don't always work the first time and sometimes people have to take 3 rounds to get rid of it, and that is taking several each day. Also, it stays in your system from what I understand and can come back out under the right conditions. You probably know that from your former significant other.

I really wonder what is happening. Right when things are going well too. I would be so upset if this happened to me. I can imagine how you must be feeling. I'm just afraid that if you increase your exercise that may throw you under the bus so be careful. I was trying to get myself back to normal and I kept working outside in the hot sun, (plenty of Vit D), but my ferritin was not doing a thing and my doc thought that I was just using up the ferritin from all of this activity. Since I have stopped that type of activity and it seems to be responding, but who really know why this stuff happens.

I had a long talk about this with my Endo about the relationship of Hashi's and low ferritin and he just doesn't believe me. I am looking for a new Endo as well. In my gut I get the feeling that it is related more so than all of the other things that we talk about here. Perhaps one day we will know more.

Do you still have monthly blood loss that can account for your ferritin being lowered? I can't imagine what would cause this to happen other than blood loss. I guess we have more to learn. When is your next ferritin test. Be Well. FLFLOWERGIRL
