Ferritin at 9
Sep 8, 2011
Hello. I had my yearly physical a couple weeks ago and they ran bloodwork. I have not felt well in forever. Very tired, brain fog, etc.

My ferritin came back at 9 and my iron saturation is at 17. My vitamin D is also low at 23.7. My doctor has me taking ferrous sulfate 325 twice a day. She will recheck me in 3 months. I also have GERD and am going to follow up with my gastro on Monday. Anyway, does the iron supplement sound about right for low iron? My hemoglobin is normal, 12.3. My red blood cells are 3.90 which is normal as well.

Also, I have had lower abdominal cramping the past 2 days, I wonder if the iron supplement could cause this?

Thanks for any input!
