Thankyou for your reply. We spoke to our GP again today about the iron overload. He said that my daughter's iron saturation level is 43% and that if it reaches 45 she will have iron overload, which could create problems like liver damage. He won't prescribe any more iron and recommends that she takes a multivitamin every other day. We really don't want other complications, or to go against our doctor, but we are so concerned about her ferritin and that it will drop, and she won't get better. Are there any iron supplements that don't effect iron saturation levels? Also, since all of her other iron related tests are normal, is it worth asking for inverstigations into why her ferritin is so low? We never really knew why her ferritin was low, we could only associate it with heavy periods. Thanks
