I was diagnosed with anemia 3 years ago after I could barely make it through my finals week at the end of the semester. I was so pale and had no energy. Over the past 3 years it's come and gone and for the last year, according to two doctors, it's gone for good. However, I'm still pale and have low energy. I have been taking iron supplements for the last 6 months (65mg) once a day. I'm posting my scores from 6 months ago and now. I just don't feel 100% :(

Also it just seems weird that after all the supplements, that the ferritin only went from 52 to 55.

Thank you anyone who posts :) I'm so happy to have found this forum!
