I have been taking Iron tablets prescribed by my GP for low iron for a couple of months. She now wants to test again and I have booked a blood test for 7th Feb. Do I carry on taking them or do I need to stop them to get a true result? My folate was also low in range and I have been taking a B Complex. Is it best to stop all supplements now? I'd prefer to keep taking them because I have been feeling pretty lousy and I want to get my levels up asap, but then again I don't want to skew the blood test.
The good news is that she has agreed to test Vitamin D. I've never had this tested before so it should be interesting. She also suggested testing for Coeliac, but the blood form says Autoimmune Screen. Anyone had one of those or knows what it covers?
