Hi, I can't believe how similar we are. I was diagnosed with iron deficiency anaemia on 26 Jan and started taking 322mg ferrous fumerate twice a day since. Am on a three month stint to see how it goes. I also have an underactive thyroid. I too am tired, anxious, irritable all the time and snap for no reason at things which are soo trivial. I am eating a diet rich in iron now, lots of liver, red meat, leafy veg and vitamin c for absorption. I am also taking 2 teaspoons of organic blackstrap molasses which has a very high iron content. I have asked my doctor about various supplements and have got a big fat "O" back. They cannot recommend any type of vitamins as trials have not been carried out!, and we go to these people for help. I am taking a multivitamin as well and various other vitamins to hopefully make me feel bitter, its all a bit trial and error. My hair feels like its thinning although I would say over the last week or so this has slowed down. I am due to have my next blood test mid April and am looking forward to seeing how I've got on otherwise its iron IV's I think. My ferritin is 4, serum iron, 6 and hemoglobin 113, so really quite low. Good luck and I hope the above helps :dizzy:
