Low Iron And No Periods
Can hypothyroidism cause heavy and extended menstrual periods and over time cause high platelet count? (450-500k) low normal iron tests.
Can low ferritin alone cause symptoms? I've very low ferritin but my haemoglobin, saturation and iron are all normal. I'm always tired. 20weeks preg.
No: Hello- being pregnant can make you feel tired even if it didn't happen with previous pregnancies. The low ferritin by itself should not cause symptoms. Make sure your prenatal vitamin has iron (i've noticed some of the gummy ones may not) and have your doctor rule-out another cause of your fatigue if it is severe or worsens. ...Read more
Ferritine too high but iron and transferrine saturation normal
doctor suggest healthy diet without red meat etc and skip vitamin pil with iron?
My iron levels are A8, ferrtin 50 and iron saturation is low as well. i regularly take iron but it is not absorbing?
Ferritin is OK.: A ferritin of 50 is normal, although your body's low iron saturation means you are using up the iron as quickly as you take it. So you may need to take a higher dose of iron. Taking iron several times a day with orange juice (or another form of acidic beverage) may help. ...Read more
Taking iron supplements, my ferritin is very low (5), my tranferrin and iron are normal. My TIBC and % transferrin saturation are high. Cause?
Partially treated: Ferritin reflects body storage iron, while serum iron and transferrin saturation reflect current iron circulating in plasma. When you take oral iron supplement, the amount of iron in circulation (absorbed from gut on its way to storage sites) is transiently high. Your data suggest you have iron deficiency, partially treated, with blood tests taken within a day or two of your most recent iron pill. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What might cause high B12 levels? I also had low iron (long-standing anemia) and low vitamin D. CBC was normal except mildly low hemoglobin.
B12 normal range: There is no harm in an elevated B12 level. The normal range is established based on a population study, but the physiology and diet factors that might lead to higher levels than those in the population study are not significant. Don't worry about it in the least. Get follow-up to see that the hemoglobin comes back to normal though. ...Read more
