Hi , my 18 year old son was diagnosed with hashimotos hypothyroidism and low ferritin. He has been depressed. He was unable to raise his ferritin on oral supplements and has had treatment with venofer . He has been scoped from both ends and all findings were normal. He also was started on Armour thyroid synthroid did not help him. He seems to feel more upbeat for a couple of months after getting the venofer then he becomes more depressed. His ferritin level was around 200 after the venofer and was 96 a couple of months later and his mood was declining. The hematologist would not give him more and said we will recheck blood in a month. Does anyone have any experience with ferritin levels after venofer and how stable they are. The doc does not know why they are dropping. He was also loosing his hair and it is starting to grow back. any other young guys out there with a low ferritin and a diagnosis for why?
