Low iron/ferritin/anemia is often associated with gluten intolerance particularly celiac disease, because the iron, as well as many vitamins, doesn't get absorbed by the diseased small bowel. I would recommend anyone who is chronically low on iron or anemic without apparent cause be checked for that. The restless leg syndrome is definitely related to low iron/ferritin and also Vit D deficiency, which can cause calcium deficiency, resulting in osteoporosis. So getting Vit D levels checked is important, as is a bone density test if low. RLS definitely causes insomnia, and Vit D deficiency can contribute to the aching leg pain that often accompanies RLS. Some research on gluten intolerance and celiac disease may clarify some of this for you.
