I've got a question about iron levels. L has been having a lot of trouble with memory and concentration in school (she has ADHD, but this seems more than usual), and I asked her pediatrician for vitamin levels, especially since she's been on omeprazole for a few years and it cause various problems. Anyway, everything came back normal except ferritin. The nurse (who wouldn't give me numbers ) said it was "a couple points low, but nothing to work about," so of course I'm worried. The thing is, she has a CBC at every liver check up and her hemoglobin and hematocrit are always high normal. I asked the nurse and she said yes, those were high normal. So...how in the world can she have high normal hemoglobin, etc, and have low ferritin? I guess I thought they went together. I tried to do some online research but I just ended up going in circles. Also, is ferritin "a couple of points low" really something I shouldn't worry about?
