Hi, I am another low ferritin of 5 with an excellent blood count and everything else they tested for, B12 etc. were all in good ranges. Have also had the colonoscopy and endoscopy, all results were normal. I have been on ferrous fumerate for a few months now and I have gone up to a 24 - UK 'normal' range is 22-332 - so I am to continue but my doctor is not at all worried, said I could always have had that low ferritin level, may be a red herring in assessing my health even!

So I am not unduly worried. Good luck with your investigations :)

I don't think it should be necessary to continue to have to take the ferrous sulfate. If you stop will you go back to a low number? I guess you have to stop and and have it checked again after a period of being off it. I would also expect the doctor to explain why it is low and you have no evidence of loosing blood. No worry, but must be an answer.
