My ferritin was tested and was found to be 47 (15-200). I am clutching at straws now, but could this be the cause of my symptoms? EXTREMELY dry, itchy skin, hair loss, tiredness, forgetfulness/brain fog, aches, restless legs etc etc. My other results were:
T4 11.4. (9.0 - 24).
TSH 2.51 (0.2 - 4.5)
Vit D 71
B12. 466 (180 - 910)
Doctors refusing to test anything else as everything in range. I was diagnosed with Coeliac Disease about two and a half years ago after a nine year struggle with symptoms.
I have just been reading an article about Coeliacs having low ferritin but I have been gluten free for over two years so would this still be a cause for me? I am so confused!! I have just bought some iron supplements but have also read that it can be dangerous to take too much iron so I don't know what to do now!! Can anyone advise please?
