low ferritin?

My ferritin is low.

It used to be a measly "8", now it's in the low 20s. Despite numerous investigations, no one is quite sure why my ferritin isn't rising since I have been supplementing for over two years now.

One of my physicians assures me that low ferritin does not cause fatigue if other blood tests do not indicate anemia.

My research has found conflicting information. But the fact is, I am crazy fatigued most days...and I have low ferritin.

Any ideas on how to raise it? Would dessicated liver tablets help?

BTW, my folate and B12 are all well within range.
