 Being at the "low" end of the range for iron is not ideal based on my research.    I'm pretty sure that if you exert any energy (e.g. exercise) or have a heavy period, you'll gobble up your iron stores.   That what happened to me during the past two years -- my ferritin levels kept going up and down.     Unless your intestines are completely healed, your body just can't keep your ferritin levels up.  I started with a 2 and now my ferritin stores are up to 55.  I'm continuing to take iron supplements until I reach 100!  Then I'll stop.   There is danger in having high ferritin levels, so labs ordered every few months to monitor them.

My husband's company is changing insurance in January so no more Kaiser. I am going to get all new labs run with a new Dr. I'm sure they will be up by then but it will at least be another set of eyes looking at my labs.
