Hi there, I had a blood test taken just over a month ago which came back as serum ferritin being 15, in UK the norm is (25-300) also serum folate 10.2 ug/l and serum vitamin b12 404 ng/l.
Since then I have been staying abroad and bought some OTC gentle iron (Ferroglobin) but in that time became extremely lethargic, no energy at all... hair started to fall out and other symptoms. So I had a private blood test, to check HB level, which surprisingly came back at 14.1 but ferritin in juat a couple weeks had dropped from 15 to 11. Everything else appears to be normal such as Hematocrit, RBC etc.
So I'm still extremely fatigued, when I stand for short periods of time my blood seems to drain from my head, and feel really sick like I'm going to collapse.
Hair is falling out bigtime! And sweating profusely... I heard you don't feel better until ferritin is in the 70's!!
Oh and I'm almost into 2 weeks of taking Floradix. As well as wanting to get the ferritin up I really would like to know what is causing it to drop as I don't really have heavy periods but I am vegetarian.

Anybody else have something similar?
