My ferritin level is at the bottom of the range, and I really want to boost it. I think it will help me convert T4 to T3.
I know that it's dangerous for iron levels to be too high. Does anyone know if I can increase ferritin without increasing other iron levels?
My recent results:
Ferritin 58 (23.0 - 300)
Red cell blood count 5.09 (4.0 - 10.0)
Haemoglobin 138 (120.0 - 150.0)
Admin have suggested this: "If I have understood correctly, the ferritin does not transfer as fully formed ferritin from gut to bloodstream. It is broken down, passed across and the body does whatever it wants/needs with it.
However, I am most definitely no expert on iron and would be happy to be corrected."
Can anyone else help me on this one please?
