Iron Deficiency?

Posted , 1 user is following.

Hi there,

I'm male, 27, 71 KG, 1.68 M (active) and had some recent DIY blood tests for vitamin level which showed a decreased ferritin level.

I did one test in July which showed my level at 73.1 ug/l and one just recently, this week, which showed my level down to 29.7 (normal range for this comany, Thriva is between 30 - 300)

Should this be a cause of concern? Haven't really felt differently and I've been also wandering if these DIY tests (that you draw blood yourself for via a finger prick) are accurate enough
