I have found the same blood test results and did research last year.
Have you checked copper levels or other heavy metals?
I read on the Stop The Thyroid Madness website that higher iron levels with low ferritin can mean an overload of heavy metals including copper.
If indeed you do find heavy metal or high copper levels, this may help...
"Vitamins and minerals antagonistic to copper include: zinc, manganese, vitamin C, B-6, B-3, B-5 (pantothenic acid) and A. The amounts, types and combinations of these nutrients that should be taken must be determined individually according to the amount of excess copper in a person's tissues and his or her symptoms and risk factors. Sulfur-based alpha-lipoic acid also helps copper overload because it enhances detoxification. The following are typical daily amounts of supplements suggested for copper overload by Gittleman: 25-50 mg. zinc; 15-30 mg. manganese; 100-300 mg. vitamin B-6; 1000-3000 mg. vitamin C; and 30-60 milligrams lipoic acid. In addition to the specific nutrients listed, Gittleman also recommends a complete multi-vitamin/mineral complex without copper. [Editor's note: Most multi-vitamin/mineral supplements contain copper."
