You know I have never been told to fast with the iron panel either. My Hematologist never ran this test for me only the PCP several times. I was told that I was having malabsorption by my GI doc as well due to PPI use of 9 yrs., and I too have a low ferritin and have to stay on iron forever. But my iron numbers have never been what yours are, I'm extremely curious. Also, the PPI causes less acid that is needed for iron to break down, without this acid you absorb less or very little if any, this is the problem. From your serum iron you look like you have absorbed it into the blood, just not the ferritin. Some people have a hard time storing iron for different/many unknown reasons. There is another poster here and her Hematologist says that she does not think this is her reason for low iron levels so I don't know what to think anymore. Keep us posted. FLFLOWERGIRL:)
