Iron component levels.

Posted , 5 users are following.

I asked a question on here a week ago but no answers. i thought maybe i would try again. My symptoms of low iron have not gone away even though my blood tests look normal. i have pins and needles ( tingling) and im extremely cold all of the time, i live in Australia, and its anything but cold here at the moment ? Also very headachy. I feel,just like i did when my ferrritin was extremely low and i needed an infusion, after bowel surgery. i know i keep,asking this, but could my blood tests be looking normal but could i still be having iron problems?

    Looking at you previous thread it looks like you do have the potential for iron deficiency anaemia. Your results can be normal but low in the range and cause symptoms. Hard to tell without results.
