I\'m worried about my iron levels. Ferritin is 5.7, Iron is 13 mdg/dL, and Iron saturation is 2%. Should I be concerned?

Hello and welcome

I appreciate your concern

The levels are low. The units haven't been specified. By iron saturation, you are probably referring to transferrin saturation , which is also low. If possible then please upload the copy of your results with the relevant units and reference range to advise accordingly.

Wishing you best of health
