11-13 is considered to be the normal range for women, Lisalea. The WHO has nominated 9 as the officially anaemic number (about 4 years ago).

You haven't mentioned any symptoms of fatigue?
Keep in mind that some people do just fine at 9.

I think that you should ask your doc to explain a few things...the picture is a bit pixillated at our end. A bit like diving score numbers at the OLYMPICS...

NB. I'm chronically anaemic and find that iron citrate is stronger and seems to work faster than floradix for me- iron citrate is recommended by Dr D for Bs and ABs.

good luck and don't worry

Cast Iron cookware?
I don't know if the general concensus is with me on this but for years I've been under the impression that cast iron cookware is a simple constant source of this mineral in ones diet. Use it if you don't have enough to get it and don't if you have too much.

That's a great idea !!!
Thanks

11-13 is considered "the norm" for ferritin levels ?????????  

Wow ... that is NOT what my doctor has told me and another
thing is that I'm very tired all the time and my breathing very shallow

Lisalea, first thing I'd do is request copies of ALL bloodwork from my dr. You can post the results pertaining to your iron here, if you'd like. It'd give us more of an idea what you're up against.  I always get copies of my blood work. I trust no doctors to interpret them correctly. Been burned too many times on that one.

God bless u !!!
I've thought of it just about a million times however; if I ask him,
my feeling is that: he will NOT appreciate it and think I'm questioning his judgement, u never know ...  
Another thing is that he always rushes me and never offers any explanation ...
I don't  feel safe with him either ... but it's VERY difficult to find a new doctor and is is even legal to ask for all my blood work ??
I'm in Canada ... I would have to inform myself first before I go ahead and ask him just incase he flatly refuses me... I so appreciate ur message Thank-u  so much

Lisalea, no worries, some people get tired at 11 and others - like me - are full of beans at 11. I got down to 6 once and had to have a blood transfusion that topped me up to the official level... of anaemia! I was a 9 at last, yippee... Geez, being anaemic felt positively lively. But that could've just been the B blood I was given as there was no AB stuff lying around that day. By Geez, that B blood was like jungle juice, girl. You people are onto some good sh-t there, man...ahem.. as I was saying..

....Do collar your doc, however. It's no good being tired, dear. It's your blood!

Meanwhile, get your chops around some lamb and chow down. The iron citrate may help you but as Henriette says, it too may contribute to some tummy upset etc.

and he prob will feel this way. don't let it stop you from asking, if it's okay in Canada. BTW, I just hopped over to the Little Fishes board and put out a new thread re: same.   Post is called "Calling all Canadians".  I think we'll soon have an answer.

All the more reason to try and find a new doctor. I really despise doctors like this.

My NP took my mom off using her iron skillet because her iron was sooo high. She's been using it all her life and taking no supplements. I guess there actually could be some other reason, but he started there.

Lisalea, if you haven't yet, check out the thread I started to find out if you can legally get your blood test results in Canada. Looks like you should be able to!!  Yippeeee!!  Let me repeat, I NEVER trust a dr to give me the real truth about what my blood work says.  They just truly have no idea. Sad but true.    My NP is great, my chiro is as well. For most things, I'd trust either one of them first.
