    Hi. Yes it is typical to have low ferritin and hypothyroidism. Ferritin should be higher than yours. After years of being at 18, I am now 37    Thats good for me! It may be an ongoing problem but certainly not uncommon. GP gave me iron pills and advised iron rich foods. Sounds easy but doesnt work as easy! Good luck  😀
