Currently I am supplementing with B12, little folate.
My folate was low normal, B12 - low normal, almost mid-range. Iron - mid-range (however it is high normal, I gave blood 4 months postpartum). My ferritin was only 13 (10-104) - also 4 months postpartum.
Had never tested folate, ferritin and B12 before this pregnancy.
Can ferritin be so low due to the recent pregnancy and birth?
I started pregnancy with a high normal iron level. Supplementing folate made my iron go top range. When I started B12 injections my iron fell down and got so low that almost went below range.
So folate increased my serum iron. B12 injections decreased it.
How about ferritin?
Also I started supplementing little iron as of Monday. Friday I am going to give blood to check thyroid levels. Can I test ferritin as well?
