Low ferritin
Oct 29, 2014
I have had iron deficiency for over a year now. I had all the tests run last year a r to check for gi bleeding all negative. Should have had the transfusion but one of my drs told, me take the pills. That got my feedback. At that time my ferretin level was 2. Now been off the pills for a while because my iron went too high but my ferretin was low. Just got checked again. I can't breathe and could sleep my life away. Ferreting is 4 hematocrit and hemoglobin are both low but not severely like last year. However my vitamin b12 is high. I was told stop taking that supplement but I'm not taking one. So the answer to that was ok then never mind. Just start taking slow fe because that doesn't cause as many side effects. That's where I am right now. Should I be concerned with the high b12 or the low ferretin? I just feel like I shouldn't be ignored with these symptoms. Any ideas,anyone?
