Low Ferritin - How Much Iron Are You Taking?
I'm new here, and very frustrated! I STILL have low ferritin. Just found out it was 29 (did increase from 15 over the past 2yrs). Iron level is, and always has been, within normal ranges. Binding capacity/percentage?? was normal too.
I've been taking one Poly-Iron 150mg (elemental) daily. He told me to take more, but really didn't specify how much...not really liking this new dr since we moved!
Does anyone take more than this - like double this amount? Since I have relatively heavy periods I'm not that concerned about having too much iron, but 300mg a day seems like an awful lot.
Thanks for any input!!
p.s. My B12 and folic acid were above normal so he said to stop taking my Biotin Forte 5mg supplement that contained these two things.
