My blood work came back with

ferritin serum 4 (13-150)
Iron Sat 7 (15-55)
Iron serum 27 (35-155)
tibc 383 NORMAL

hemoglobin 11.6 (11.1-15.9)
mchc 29.7 (31.5 - 35.7)

rdw19.0 (12.3-15.4)
platelets 480 (140-415)

My doctor has told me to just continue with iron supplements 3 times a day and eat iron rich foods. Would this be enough to get it up? The iron levels are so low that I've been dizzy and can't concentrate at all. It's so bad. Any food ideas or anything else I should be aware of? Also what's the deal with the RDW and platelets being elevated? Is it because of the low iron? Thanks! 4 months ago my mchc was low. I didn't have iron checked so I don't have anything to compare it to yet.
