Hi lilly and welcome :) Sadly low/difficult to raise ferritin levels appear to go hand in hand with thyroid issues, particularly us Hashimoto's sufferers. Basically from what i've learnt, the thyroid receptors in the stomach affect our digestion/absorption levels. Also the pancrease is part of the Endocrine system and when the pancrease is not producing sufficient enzymes, digestion suffers at this point too. This is most likely why most of us look to be on iron supplements for life!!

In case you haven't already, get your Vitamin D levels checked and make sure they are at the upper end of the lab range. A lot of thyroid sufferers have low levels of Vit D.
