... Hi, I have been struggling with low ferritin for a long time. Mine is currently 30, took forever to get to that though. I just take oral iron. My hematologist tested me for celiac, lupus and other auto immune stuff. I had to have a colonoscopy to rule out crohns and any other bleed. You must ask for tests!!
