Back in June i had 6 iron infusions because i was so anemic.
A week after my last infusion...26. June
Ferritin 297 (30-400) strange range for female
Iron 32 (49-151)
Transferritin 2.5 (2-3.6)
Trasferritin sat 8.9 (16-45)
13 Sept. (different doc/lab)
Ferritin 73 (50-170) no other iron tests
I'm baffled. After 6 infusions my iron was still low. Doctors ignored my iron and only cared about ferritin. Which yes ferritin is important but should my low iron and trans. sat be ignored.
What does all of this mean in regards my thyroid. I always hear ferritin should be between 70 and 90 but what if iron is too low. I also know inflammation can falsely raise ferrition. So should i focus on raising my iron and not focus on ferritin?
Btw regarding symptoms... feel like hell😢.
