I have been tested twice over 4 months after being on 300mg ferrous gluconate 3 times a day and my levels are still around 4 when they should be 100/150. I am not coeliac, that has been tested, my doctor said it will be due to heavy periods. I cant see this however as my periods are VERY light. Just hoping its not somthing underlying.
