    I asked the doctor to specifically test my ferritin levels, she did:
    %SAT, dTIBC, FE and Trans.
    Is FE the ferritin?? Or did she not do it? I can't seem to find the answer in my online searches.

    I did find out my zinc is low. So I need to up that. I want to start Rogaine soon.. I am so nervous about it. It will either work and I am worried about the big shed or it won't work and that would be awful too!

    Your doctor did all of the right test for iron status, including Ferritin. Was was your TIBC? Did she do a full thyroid panel? To best understand iron lab values, this site has been helpful to me.
