Low ferritin levels - substituting ?

Hi all,

I have very low ferritin levels: 12 (reference range ist 24 - 300). Has someone also low ferritin levels? Someone experience with substituting iron? I tried to substitute iron for a few days, but I felt like the infection symptoms get worse. Is this possible? Maybe Cpn rely on iron with their metabolism. Is there something known?

Iron feeds cpn.  Your levels are probably low because the cpn is stealing your iron.  Kill the infection, then the iron theft will stop.
