In Reply to: Iron Therapy...How long does it take? posted by Deanna on February 13, 2000 at 16:47:17:
: I've been on Iron Therapy for 3 months. No change is seen in my bloodwork. How long does it usually take to see improvement? I certainly don't feel any better.
There are some types of Iron that are just not easy for some people to aborb.You should see a change in a month at least.Some foods interfears with aborption; beer, candy, soft drinks, dairy including ice cream, coffee, tea.Donot take calcium, antiacids, zinc, and vit-E ---these also mess with iron aborption(take at least 8 hrs apart).
I think you should try taking a tablespoon 2 times a day--- contains B vits& Iron and easily aborbed also relatively inexpensive.
