Re: Low Ferritin & Spatone

It will be interesting. I had a blood test done yesterday after taking the tablets for 30 days. Will be interesting to see how much of a rise there is after that.

And then I'll have another one in 30 days to see the rise on the Spatone ... I'll be getting an apples for apples comparison.

I suppose it all comes down to how my body absorbs iron hey. We can't compare to each other because levels will raise if bodies absorb iron quicker and well.

I'll let you know how I get on with results.
Your pharmacist is right about the absorption of Spatone. But you need a lot of it. I really hope it works out for you. Keep us posted on your results. FLFLOWERGIRL
