Low ferretin/folate

Posted , 2 users are following.


ive recently had a blood test which showed my ferretin/folate and vitamin d is low.

i found my results on the patient app and even had a call from the doctors receptionist to advise me i need to see a doctor. the ridiculous thing is they have no appointments so have to wait until god knows when to be treated

Anyhow im so anxious about whats next.im sure ill be prescribed supplements but because i had the same issue 3 years ago will they want to refer me for further tests.

im petrified of anything medical. Ridiculous i know but has anyone else had this in the past
