Hi Kaymarina,

I know it's been a while since you posted but I'm in the exact same position as you - ferritin of 2 (I was told I was very slightly anaemic 12 months ago, and after the initial ferrous fumarate prescription I was re-tested and told I was ok...anyway feeling like death warmed up again I eventually decided to see the GP again, got a rushed blood test and ferritin result came back as 2....been on ferrous fumarate for nearly a month now along with anything between 1 - 3 sachets of Spatone and copious amounts of heme iron - feeling like a different person but still tire out easily, anyway I found out yesterday that a year ago my ferritin was tested and was 3 (I wasn't told this at the time) upon re testing....ferritin wasn't even tested!!

I'm due for a blood test on the 28th of this month now - but how are you getting on with your ferritin levels? I do hope you're feeling better by now and not having problems with the iron tablets as I hear a lot of other people do.

I wish you all the best and it would be great to hear from you / compare symptoms as I've been having flashes and visual disturbances for about two years and opticians say my eyes are fine ...I've found that there is a link to anaemia but haven't heard many people mentioning it.

All the best and bye for now,


[QUOTE=Kaymarina;5186720]Hi .. I wondered if anyone knows if its ok to take spatone and ferrous fumarate 3 times a day?? My ferritin is 2 and my gp says that I really need to get as much iron in me as possible. But I just wanted your advice as a lot of you seem so much more knowledgeable about anemia than my gp. Thank you xx[/QUOTE]
