@monet-how frequently do you get blood tests to "monitor' your iron levels? THe last test i had was 1 yr ago so I requested for another test. What does your hematologist order, just iron/ferritin? Does he order any B12, Vit D levels?
No one has ever checked my b12 or D. BUt when I get insurance, i will get all that done
@Monet, Glad to hear you're getting your insurance. Is it a PPO insurance? PPO is alot better b/c it gives you the flexbility to see whomever you want. When i first purchased insurance I had to get a HMO and it was pure hell.

What's the diff betw OTC iron and prescription other than the prescription is higher dosage? Are your pills very big? I was given a sample 4-5 yrs ago when i first tested at a clinic for severe anemia...but they were so big it caused a gagging reflex, so I just bought oTC ones...I bought one that is a combo of B12/iron/folic acid.
