I found out I had iron deficiency anaemia 3 months ago. Which judging by the symptoms I have had it for around 8-10 years.
I have been on Ferrous Sulphte for 3 months, 3 tablets a day.
My ferritin level was 4 and after three months it is now 5.
I am pleased that it's going in the right direction but quite disappointed that it is still so low. Does it typically take this long to increase?
Just to mention as soon as I found out I was iron deficient I quit tea and coffee completely, I have been put on the pill to lesson my monthly period, I have started to eat red meat often (I didn't eat it before) and I have been taking my tablets exactly as I should...hours after/ before milk and on an empty stomach with a high vitamin c drink to help absorption. Is there anything else I can do to help myself. I have completely changed my diet to be really high in iron rich foods but it doesn't seem to be helping much. Thanks for any advice.
