    Post Still Anemic, even though I'm taking Iron

    My ferritin level has dropped steadily over the last year from 12 to 7. I have faithfully been taking iron supplements (Ferrous Gluconate, 900mg/day) for the last 8 months. Any idea what I'm doing wrong? Could there be another avenue I should be pursuing?

    Unless you take folic acid, you don't fix iron, no matter how much you take. B complex is necessary too.

    I hope this helps.
