Ferritin level
Mar 11, 2009
My Hemoglobin is 15.2,My TIBC is high normal,transferrin is low normal,iron level is high,saturation is high,ferrtin is 8.
I do have PICA-ice chewer.I have RLS for which I take 75MG Lyrica daily.I had been on 325MG iron per day but aDr. I know out of state who saw my blood work results says I should go off iron immediately cause my iron level was close to overload.
I haven't spoken with my PCP yet about whether oft not I need to see a Hematologist.I have bloodwork done monthly and B-12 shots monthly.I have been anemic all my life and made it worse by going off red meat for 5 years to lose weight.At that time,my hemo. sllipped to 8. I feel good and have more energy than most 66 yr old women.I also have osteoporosis and arthritis. Do I have any reason to be concerned.My PCP has never mentioned anything about my ferritin level.He's been treating me for years.
