I used to get a lot of results that said "hypochromia" so I was diagnosed as iron deficient but when my bone marrow biopsy showed increased iron stores and a blood ferritin of over 5000 they had to rethink my diagnosis. Turns out in my case that because I had a very low copper level I couldn't incorporate the iron into my cells and they looked pale. In the meantime the unused iron was building up in the bone marrow.
