Low iron saturation
Dec 20, 2012
I haven't been feeling well for months. I went for blood work and my DR told me the only thing that was abnormal was my vitamin D level is 8.4. I am losing hair and now have bald spots. I am irritable, queasy and have dull pains in my stomach. I went to an endocrinologist and he told me I am anemic. My iron saturation level is low at 12%. When I asked how much iron I should be taking he said talk to your GP. But the GP was the one that said my iron was fine. I'm a bit lost on how much I need and don't feel like my DR will be helpful. Can anyone help guide me to the right amount of iron I should take? Do you know if this would also cause hair loss? Thank you.
