I would agree with FLFLOWERGIRL, taking such a high dose of iron 'could' be dangerous, but then i'm not a doctor, but do know most of the iron supplements for people with low iron contain about 300 or so mg of iron.

I too have thyroid issues and have hashimoto's. For the last week or so i've not been feeling too wonderful and like you said, i too am feeling the way i used to feel when my ferritin was down at 8. On saturday when i was doing my housework i had to take about 4 lie downs throughout the day to regain energy. I know it's not my ferritin as it was up to 80 about 5 weeks ago. I have a feeling it's related to my thyroid and in particular to my adrenals as my cortisol levels had come down a fair bit recently.

Does your thyroid doctor check your adrenals to see whether your cortisol levels are too low/high? Do you check your Vitamin D levels? Vit D is beneficial for our adrenal function too.

The joys of thyroid issues!! Hope your feel better soon :)
