My Ferritin count is 34, my iron 8,5 and Hb 11. I am very tired, despite receiving Venofer 3 weeks ago. Before that my Ferritin was 9, my iron 10,3 and Hb 11.4. I feel that it is still to low, as I am not feeling better and if I understand the article correctly, my Ferritin should be about 50. Previous doctor always kept my ferritin levels at 100. Am I correct?
