[QUOTE=KrissyMae18;3662929]Well, I did buy an iron supplement today...Feosol, and the bottle says to take 1 pill a day, but the pharmacist said to take it 3 times a day so I don't know what to do. My Doctor said it was okay (over the phone) to take a supplement, but didn't say how much. Do I listen to the pharmacist or the instructions on the bottle? Also, what is this "ablation" procedure that you spoke of? I've never heard of it. I don't necessarily want a hysterectomy, but my doctor won't put me on birth control because of my age I guess. I'm 44. Do you know if Anemia is hereditary?[/QUOTE]

KrissyMae18--I'm sorry you are going through all this. It's good to clear up the anemia, you will feel so much better.

You should begin your iron over the weekend at the lower dose to get your body acclimated to the iron, then call on Monday and see what your doctor recommends. It's always good to break in slow or you can get really ill from it. I would however, ask for a script iron that is GI friendly and a higher dose. The OTC doses are not so strong and have more S/E's and you take more of them.

Do a search for Endometrial Ablation and you can read all about the procedure. I had this last year and had great results. My Hgb was 8.5 with a 2 ferritin and shortly after the procedure my numbers continued to climb. Although I'm still working on the ferritin. I too have Hashi's, many people here also have this AI disease and Anemia. Good luck to you. FLFLOWERGIRL:)
