Hi any advice greatly appreciated.
I have been feeling pretty poorly for well over the last 2-3 months. I have been to the gp on many occasions and had many tests, including thyroid etc. today the gp rang to say the problem was my hb level was 9 and my ferritin level was undetectable. He has left me a prescription out of folic acid 5mg for once a day and wants to repeat the bloods in 3 months.
I am relieved it's something so simple, disappointed it took them so long to diagnose but now frightened as I don't understand!!!!
- why has this happened now?
- is 5mg going to be enough?
-why wait 3 months what if the iron doesn't start to store up?

Nb im 44 years old going through the menopause following a hysterectomy at the age of 28.
Please help
