Re: Low Ferritin
Sep 15, 2011
[QUOTE=shannons4;4840242]Hello, my doctor just told me my ferritin level is a 2 and he said it is very low. Does this mean I am anemic and have low iron levels? What are the symptoms of low ferritin levels?[/QUOTE]

Hi, I think your Dr. should have told you what amount of iron to take and what kind. Mine actually prescribed me Ferrous Fumurate 300 mg to take three times a day. (although I can only take it twice because I have to take it on full stomach or I throw it up!) I checked with pharmacist about that and he said to take it with food because at the huge amount I was taking I would still absorb a lot of it. Anyways I read on the boards some people were taking a different kind of iron which is why I think your Dr. should have told you-especially with a level of 2!!!
I agree, the symptoms are low energy, fatigue, cold and dizzy too. You can sleep for 12 hours and wake up tired. Oh and sometimes your hair starts falling out- nothing major but more annoying to me anyway!
I would like to know how long it takes for these supplements to "kick in!" :confused:
