I have been diagnosed with low ferritin and low folate..
Folate is 8 and should be between 10 & 300.
Folate is 2.3 and should be above 4.
Also had my b12 checked which was 200 and should be between 180 & 1000.
I've been put on Ferrous Fumarate 210mg's I was prescribed this 3 x a day but due to IBS ect the doctor and myself found I tolerate it better on 1 & a half tablets a day.
Folic acid is 5mg a day.
I have a few symptoms like shortness of breath, tiredness, dizziness ect, but my worst one that I hate is my hair is thinning and on the sides even more so.. I was wondering if anyone else had this problem and when your levels returned to normal did your hair come back through?
Also even though my doctor says my b12 is fine should they be treating me for it as it is on the low side and it always lingers between 190 & 220 and personally I think it should be higher really but my GP won't treat it.
