Dr. Pineda diagnosed my low ferritin level in 2013. I had been plagued with anemia since I was very young. At times could hardly walk around. He ordered an iron infusion and I have been getting them since when my level drops low. Most doctors won't order a ferritin level or recognize how important it is. I am now 76 years old, I simply do not absorb enough iron.
