Hi Ive been having a lot of issues which I'm now wondering are actually related to my back, possibly ankylosing spondylitis. Ferritin was 67 in nov and I've been eating extra iron in my diet s well as taking re spatone sachets but it's now 55.
I lost a lot of muscle and weight due to long term not enough thyroxine which I've now begun to recover so it could be this.
Gp was raising ferritin to see if it helped with rls symptoms in my spine and ribs before trying a medication.
So - what level should I encourage him to aim for? I think he'll be prescribing iron tablets today. What might be best sort?
