I am new to this board. On Friday after a month of iron treatments or oral iron I was diagnosed with a ferritin deficiency. I had never even heard of ferritin. Since Friday I spent an immense amount of time reading as much as I can locate on anemia caused by low ferritin. I am still very confused.

I sit typing on here with a copy of my blood work beside me:

Whit Blood Cell 7.8
Hemoglobin 10L (I thought this was great as I was admitted to the hospital the Sunday after Thanksgiving because it was 5.8L)
Hemocrit 33L
Platelet 440
Mean Corpuscular Volume 75.2 L
Mean Corpuscular HGB Concentration 30.3 L
Red Cell Distribution Width-CV 22.2

Iron Level 19 L
Total Iron Binding 581

% Transferrin Saturation 3L

Ferritin L4

I am supposed to hear from a hemotologist this week to have them set up some type of IV treatment. I know sooo very little about all this. If anyone can enlighten me, please do!

Thank You.
