First of all if your ferritin is that low - diet wont' help fast enough - actually otc iron pills will take a long time too - I cannot tolerate them either - horrible constipcation - I've tried 3 different Rx strength iron, with stool softeners, fiber, lots of water, etc. I am in the middle of Iv Iron Infusion and its way easier to tolerate - not sure it's working for me yet in terms of getting my other blood levels up - but it is getting my Ferritin up. They still have to find the cause! Getting it back up is typically a bandaid. Most women are anemic from their periods - I don't get mine anymore - had ablation done in 04. 2nd cause is usually GI bleed but they've ruled that out with me too --- then they tend to look at the Bone Marrow - which is where I'm at I guess.
Good Luck - keep us posted.
