I had iron deficiency last year with ferritin 10 but normal haemoglobin. It was caused by heavy periods. I felt much better when I got my ferritin above 65. I recently had the heaviest period of my life so was told to increase iron tablets to 3 a day. However, my total iron binding capacity and serum iron have come back normal. I don't know what my ferritin is and am asking to have it done again. Can being on iron tablets make my serum iron and TIBC normal even though I might need them due to low ferritin? I have all the symptoms of iron deficiency again. My ferritin has been dropping the last few months from 65 to 35 to 24.
