[QUOTE=worrywort;5103436]A few months ago I had a ferritin of 4 then a 13 but my hemoglobin became normal.doc is now saying my symptoms are unrelated to anemia because my hemoglobin is normal!!! My ferritin is still low though! Hair loss and everything else that comes with low ferritin! please, any advice? maybe find a new hemo doc? so frustrated! he didnt even check my ferritin this last visit! it took 2 months for it to get to 13 from 4.
thanks so much![/QUOTE]

Worry, you need to still take the iron. My hematocrit and hemoglobin are both great yet my ferritin still struggles to to rise. Don't stop taking the iron, maybe get a second opinion if you can. This is something that needs to be done under a Dr's care. My Dr. says the anemia diagnosis still sticks as long as my ferritin is low and won't stop treating it till I get higher up. With your hemoglin and hopefully hematocrit rising that should help your numbers go up faster.

Unfortunately ferritin takes a long time to go up. I just had a uterine ablation done on Monday my ferritin is a 33 as of now and that is after 8 months of taking iron and a ferritin starting at 2. My OBGYN even said I need to continue to take the iron with normal hematocrit and globin. She told me plan on taking iron for another year.

I hope you can find someone that is going to help you. Your ferritin is still way to low.

Thanks Heather! I can still show syptoms even though my hemoglobin up right? so frustrated! I almost had an ablation but went against when my doc said I might have to do it again. I hope that works for you! keep me posted on that. I appreciate your reply so much! :)
