Just got my labs back after one month of oral supplements (325mg Fe, 1000 mcg B12:

Hgb 12.5, Hct 39, B12 291, Ferritin 6

From what I can deduce even though my levels have gone up it doesn't appear to be enough. Although I'm not feeling any worse I'm certainly not feeling any better.

How long does it take for the supplements to start upping the B12 and Ferritin levels? It's to my understanding that "optimal" levels of B12 are above 600 and Ferritin should be around 100?

Any thoughts would be much appreciated, my doctor seems to feel that since my numbers all went up treatment is sufficient.
