Steph74--I think that it is 35-40 days to respond to iron supplements but I think that was the Hgb. Once that goes up you should begin to store iron.

I can tell you that when I was borderline anemic my retic count (same thing) was at the high end at the top range. This number should respond right away within days from iron therapy. A simple blood test would tell you. Anemia can be caused by a bone marrow problem, bleeding, or RBC destruction. I would do what the doc said and take the iron and it does take 3X. If that is too hard ask for something else that is easier. FLFLOWERGIRL:)
