Hi, I know exactly how you feel. I had a blood test in January because I was just feeling so lethargic and hair was thinning quite badly. Bloods came back with ferritin of 4, serum iron, 6 and hemoglobin 11.3. Started iron tabs on 26 Jan and meanwhile took organic blackstrap mollases and ate an iron-rich diet, lots of liver, and i got a tincture called yellow dock which is supposed to really increase ferritin. Had bloods done yesterday and my ferritin is 23, serum iron 16.7 and hemoglobin 13.2 so now all normal apart from ferritin which will hopefully improve even more over the coming months. Hope this helps

Maybe I should try the molasses--I've never heard of yellow dock. I'll have to check that out. It sure seems like your levels came up quickly!! Well, lots more quickly than mine. I'm taking three "super" iron pills/day. Bifera is the name of the iron pill--it's supposed to be as powerful as a transfusion when you take one/day and I'm taking 3 of these pills a day and my levels haven't gone up like yours did! Niknak71--how much molasses did you take and was it everyday? I'm willing to try anything safe and natural that won't harm me to try and get my levels up! My hair is thinning and I just want to feel like the old Wendy! Thanks for the info!
