Haven't posted of visited for a while as been rather unwell and lots of 'things' to sort out in my life.
However hope someone can enlighten me on this wonderful helpful site.
Recent FBC blood test showed Feritin level of 57ng/ml in range of 15-300 ng/ml
Is this considered too low?
My GP said I was slightly anaemic but no action needed. (Have been told this on many occasions)
Other results were
Red blood cell count 3.88 10^12/L [3.9 - 5.6]
Haematocrit 0.35 [0.37 - 0.48]
Not sure what other bits are taken in to consideration. Have looked at previous posts but still confused.
I'm a S/I of B12 which she knows about. I tell them all now.
Getting info out of health professionals is like getting blood out of a stone. Recent Opthalmology appointment reveals Age Related Dry Macular but apparently this started in 2008, though they didn't tell me then and I was never recalled. What I only found out from online GP records is that I also have start of cataract, doesn't say which eye though. So glad I've kept all copy letters, blood tests etc.
Have to say I was slightly devastated at this diagnosis when I've said many many times that I was seeing wonky lines with my left eye and no one took me seriously.
Thank you in anticipation SallyB
