Macrocytic anemia (RBC 3.46, MCV 99)

Iron blood test results:

Total iron 126 (range 40-175) NORMAL
TIBC 348 (range 250-450) NORMAL
% saturation 36 (range 15-50) NORMAL
Ferritin 14 LOW

What does it mean to have normal iron but low ferritin? I have been supplementing with Floradix for over a year.
