I have chronic anaemia due to heavy bowel bleeds and also ive a disease which depletes ferritin stores(i have psoriatic arthritis for those who know it) i was taking oral iron 3 times a day and after a month my levels Hgb were 7.6 and feritin 8 so it wasnt workin very well so since july im on 100mg iron sulphate twice a week via injection(pain in *** literally :dizzy: ) but they have recently told me my level increases are stopping so they dont expect ill ever not be anamic but are hoping to keep my Hgb up to at least 10 and my ferritin to stay up in double figures and possibly in and around 20, I know this is low and often people experience terrible effects at these levels but i feel alot better than before my iron injections still terriblt tierd but can walk about with out getting severe cramps or getting dizzy and out of breath.
Taking or speak to your doctor about taking folic acid as a supplement as this does have an impact on cell renewal also avoid caffeine especially around times of your doses.
