I've been trying to read around this particular issue, but it's still no clearer. Hoping someone will be able to help?
I had one blood test which indicated my ferritin levels were low : 42 ng/ml (20-204).
A month later, I had a private test which included ferritin testing and this showed: 100.0 (20 - 150 ug/L).
Therefore, (I think) there's an indication that I was experiencing an 'inflammation' at the time of the second test and my ferritin was being stored more aggressively. Is that correct?
So, my question is whether I should supplement with iron? Even if ferritin is showing as being relatively good as in the second test?
Hope someone can help clear this up for me as I cannot figure it out. Keen to get all my supplementing on the right tracks. In terms of symptoms hair loss is a major issue and has been for a long while hence wanting to get this one right.
