Yes that is: A low level. Generally a low ferritin is due to poor iron stores, and the most likely cause is blood loss -- usually chronic in nature.

A 24-year-old female asked:

Can a ferritin level of 14 cause symptoms? If so, what are the symptoms that a ferritin level of 14 can cause?

Iron deficiency: Ferritin levels per se will not cause symptoms. Low ferritin levels are an indication of iron deficiency and you may be anemic, if so, weakness, paleness, lack of exercise tolerance may be some symptoms. A woman of reproductive age loses iron in menstrual blood and it would be okay to take oral iron supplement with multivitamins.
