My ferritrin level was measured to be 100 mcg per litre. I would like to raise it to 250 to see if this improves my intolerance to certain foods.
I am not sure what is the best way to go about this. I take 45mg of ferrous biclycinate every night.
I have gained the impression that iron biglyncinate is used to achieve a short term effect and make iron available overnight.
The doctor I saw at a clinic told me that ferrous fumerate was best for the long term increase in ferritin level.
Trouble is that I have been taking ferrous fumerate for three nights and I have had RLS for three nights. Last night was 2am to 6am and thats annoying.
Does any of our expert community know if fumerate is a recognised trigger for RLS?
Is my understanding that biglycinate is only for a short term effect correct or would I be more likely to get a long term increase in ferritin by taking say 90mg of ferrous biglycinate?
