Low ferritin not responding supplements
I've suffered from low ferritin (usually around 10) for 2 years now. My doctor recommended I take iron supplements, which haven't done anything. I've tried everything, I take it on an empty stomach, take it with vitamin C, I've taken it in liquid form, too. I can tolerate an enormous amount of iron. Now I am taking 4-5 iron pills a day, with absolutely no side effects whatsoever. Has anyone else on this message board been able to take this much without feeling anything? My hunch is that my body doesn't create enough to digest the iron, but I really have no idea.
