I have had some fantastic advice on here but I'm very confused about my daughter 's latest results!
Her ferritin level was 10 back in October so she followed a strict supplementation regime until now. Yesterday's results show ferritin at 63(20-291)
Serum iron below range at 10.6(10.7-32.2)
Transferrin at 18%(15-50) and red blood cell at 4.01(3.9-5.4)
I am mystified that these levels are decreasing when she has taken chelated iron then 3 x 210 mg ferrous fumerate with high strength vitamin c.
At the surgery she was told that everything is okay yet I am very worried about her ability to absorb iron. Her B12 has raised nicely from 217 to 462(211-911) and her folate is fine I think at 16.4
She is not on any thyroid medication as she has never been diagnosed despite previous symptoms. I am pleased to say that she is feeling better than before but I'm still alarmed about the iron results after all this time.
I've been and remain very very grateful for any pointers x
