Christie67--I was taking Poly Iron 150 X2 daily getting 300mgs of iron daily. This was a script but you can ask for it at the pharmacy and get it yourself. It also has the Vitamin C already in it. This was given to me by a GI doc because I have GERD and the first iron Ferris Sulfate landed me in the hospital. In addition to the iron, I took a prenatal vitamin for several months and then changed to a regular one because I read that prenatal compromise the synthroid that I take.

My hair was shedding very badly when my ferritin stayed down for almost the whole yr. I started at a 2 ferritin, I think I forgot to post that in my Lab because 20 was my last count and I went with that figure. As my ferritin got to around 20 I started getting the flyaway hairs all over in the front and top of my head. Not too pretty but at least I have hair. I am lucky because I have lots of hair but fine and could afford to lose some, but it got scary for me. When it is humid out forget it I can't hide it anymore hair pops out everywhere. Thanks for your reply. Be well. FLFLOWERGIRL:)

Linds--Thanks for the reply and best wishes. When are you having your procedure? FLFLOWERGIRL:)

Christine--I really need to study this monster because I didn't realize that the thyroid was working differently as you said. I know I sound stupid. My doctor said it's nothing to worry about, so I didn't. Since I have been on this boad I have learned a little different and need an education. I don't think that I have ever been Hyper though, that would be scary. The palps with the anemia were enough to due me in. Thanks for the reply. FLFLOWERGIRL:)
