Hi. Wanted to reply to your question. Have you had your kidney function checked? Sometimes chronic anemia can be from that. Also, chronically low Ferrous Iron levels can be from bleeding somewhere in your body. Once the Ferritin levels get low enough (anything lower than 70), you must begin on supplementation. You have to take Ferritin by itself (drink it down with some Orange Juice, as the Vitamin C makes the iron absorb better) and then, you must wait four hours after taking the iron supplement, before taking any other medications or vitamins (it will make your iron supplement totally useless). You should also know, you CANNOT take Ferritin with MILK PRODUCTS or CAFFEINE, as it will also make the iron useless. Hope that this helps????

No, I havent had my kidney function checked...I will ask my dr about that today. Im extremely dizzy and short of breath so I know it hasnt gone up, I just hope it hasnt gone lower than 6.4 in a weeks time.
I had an endoscopy while in the hospital and a colonoscopy a week later due to 6 positive occult samples...the bleeding is still unexplained.

I usually take meds with water, I will try taking it with oj and see if that helps, thank you!

On my way to dr for blood work...
