gwlovesmj--Welcome to the boards! :wave:

A couple of things stand out to me when I read your post. First, know that slow fe is one of the lowest forms of iron that you can take. Delayed action, equals lower amount of absorption as well.

Next thing, it sounds like your Hgb reading that is at an 8.0 and increased to 12.0 which is the lower end/borderline anemic range for Hgb. This also places you ~at risk~ for iron deficiency setting in again. So, this tells us that your Ferritin is also low at this time since the ferritin's end stage of stored iron is indeed (IDA) iron deficiency anemia.

Sounds to me like a possibility is that you discontinued your iron therapy way too soon. Iron should be continued for a period of time UP to 6 months after the anemia is resolved. You also may need a (higher dose) less frequency iron.

Finally, you need to address the cause of this problem. It is confusing, I'm sorry that you are dealing with this. Keep us posted. FLFG:)
