What would you do?
Feb 10, 2015
At the end of November I was told my Ferritin level was 8. The nurse said...take some Iron...we usually want people to be over 15 for iron stores.

A friend suggested Blood Builder so I started taking one a day.

Last month I had a pretty heavy period and afterwards my legs started aching like crazy. Leg cramps...joint pain...which I've had off and on for months...ive also had other symptoms that have worried me.

I started researching on the Internet...and saw some folks doctors recommended taking more than one a day when their levels was in single I left a message with my doctor.

I looked at the bottle and Blood builder says 26mg iron...I called the company but they said their iron couldn't be compared to the prescription iron in terms of dosing??

My doctor called me back and recommended taking Vitron C which has 65mg iron...only one a day. I know my hemo was normal but I thought the single digits of Ferritin was something to be concerned about.

Should I get a second opinion???
