    Low Iron Levels

    My wife has been dealing with low iron levels for years although taking iron supplements, regularily tested and comes in at 13-17 on a regular basis, has been taking iron supplements (ferrous sulphate 300mg/day) for years. GP states he's not concerned as hemoglobin levels show OK but my understanding is these iron levels are low and once stores are totally depleted anemia will follow and hemoglobin will fall below acceptable levels. Recently testing also shows low vitamin D even though she has been taking 1,000 iu/day D3 supplement. She has no energy and we are making no progress, doctor accepts the iron level as the way it is but he doesn't have to live with the effects of it.

    Could use some input here, thoughts, comments?
