My last blood test showed my Ferritin is very low at 13 so I've been prescribed iron tablets. My doc said that could be the cause of my fatigue. I've been hypo for several years, on 100 of Levothyroxine & 1 grain of NDT daily, my thyroid labs are normal. Anyone here have something similar? I'm wondering what could have caused low ferritin, I eat iron rich foods & take multi vitamins which include iron, my B & D etc are fine. I wonder if it's blood loss as I get more frequent heavier periods (every 3 weeks.) I read also that it could be cos I have chronic indigestion but I take Lansoprazole & Levothyroxine which keeps that at bay. Anyway I just hope the iron tablets work & I get more energy...
