Anyone here care to comment?
I’ve recently had some blood tests done by the GP and my ferritin level is 69 (range 20 - 300). I am a 59 year old male. My iron levels and haemoglobin are both in range. By my calculations my ferritin is only about 17.5% of the range and I was also of the opinion that a healthy figure for a man should be around 100?
I am suffering from irritability and insomnia, both of which I believe can be symptoms of low ferritin levels. If I was to start taking a supplement, what would be best? (that I can obtain without a prescription)
