    Unhappy Ferritin down after 4 months of taking iron


    Does anyone know how my iron can go from 10 to 4 even after taking 325mg of iron two times a day for 4 months now? I am at my wits end with this since I have had problems with this for years now. Anyone else have this happen to them?

    You may not be absorbing the iron or have some blood lost which you are not detecting. You need to go to your doctor to find out why. What does you other blood work show, hgb etc. I have been going through this for several years where my ferritin drops for no reason. Hematologist is still working on it, but at 4 your Hgb would be low or should be. Are you anemic?
