Hello everyone, I just joined your group today and I am hoping someone can shed some light on the information I rec'd from the dr, because I am confused!

I have since I was a teenager always had low iron and been off and on of iron supplements for a long time. A couple of weeks ago I went into my dr because I could tell my iron was low again, but I have been taking my iron supplements twice a day and eatting all the high iron foods I should be.

The dr has told me that my iron is at a 3 (last may it was 9 and at Christmas it was at 6), but my hemeglobin is okay right now. He told me to take more iron, and that was it, but I am already taking two a day, I can't take anymore!!

I am extremely tired, my hair is falling out in chunks and I can't remember anything these days!!

I know I need to do more, but I don't know what to do, my mother suggested getting a referral to a heamatologist, do you think this is necessary at this point?

Any help would be wonderful, as I have no idea what all of this means!
