I was diagnosed with low Ferritin levels a while ago, 46 and dropping. Probably good by this group's measure, but I dropped 20 points in a month even though I was taking a multimineral with Iron. The GP 'ruled out' any blood loss and put me on 300 mg of Ferrous Sulphate twice a day. I never did take the 2nd pill every day, as I would have needed an auger to crap. I switched myself to 54mg of Ferochel twice daily and the levels are back up to 63.

But what I don't know is what else does the Pariet screw up? I've read that it can reduce Calcium absorption, but what about Zinc, Selenium, Copper, etc? The GP said it did not affect anything other than Iron.
