Hey! Just thought I'd post an update! I've just had another blood test, since joining a new doctor surgery and they tested for full blood count, iron stores, B12 etc. Well my last blood results prior to this (end of July) showed a ferritin level of 11, it dropped from 15 in just 2 weeks, whilst I was taken an iron supplement Ferroglobin. So I was slightly worried why it dropped so fast. Since then my hair is falling out bigtime, I am surprised I have any left, although nobody else seems to notice other than me (unless they are just being nice).
I have been taking Floravital, which is a the other version of Floradix, except I noticed it had 19mg iron which is a little more than the 15mg in the Floradix, also it is gluten and yeast free, which I figured might absorb a bit better, even though I have never been diagnosed with any gluten intolerances.

So about 5 weeks later, I've just got my results for the latest blood test and it has all come back normal, no highlighted boxes, ferritin is 28! Which I am happy about, because it means it has gone up by 17 in just over a month! I never put my prescription in for Ferrous Fumerate from the doctor, and I think I will stick with this Floravital now... I had a feeling it went up a bit, as the heart palpitations calmed down as did the breathlessness from climbing stairs etc.
I do recommend Floravital, it seems to have a better absorption (which has been proven on my blood work)
Now I just need to see when my hair will reach a level where it stops falling out!
