My daughter is 13 years old. She has recently-within the last 3 months, been experiencing many symptoms related to anaemia. Her blood count showed she is low on iron. She has been taking Feramax(150mg) for 1 month now. She is still exhibiting the same symptoms. I.e. Nauseous, headaches, shortness of breath, low blood pressure.
I have several questions. Is 150mg a day too much for a 13 yr old girl. Weight-115lbs. She is an elite athlete for her age, runner and highly competitive basketball player.
Can these symptoms also be a result of too much iron consumption?
How often should her blood work be done?
Please help. I hate to see her like this.
