My partner has changed to NDT (Armour) from Levothyroxine. This is looking pretty good so far - however one thing we wanted to make sure we had right is his ferritin level.
Last blood test this was 40, range 30-400 ug/L. His endo said that this was "fine", but we promptly ignored her and he started taking ferrograd C. This contains two active ingredients; ferrous sulphate, which is a form of iron and ascorbic acid, which is vitamin C. Exact amounts are 325mg (equivalent to 105mg elemental iron) in a prolonged release formulation and Vitamin C (equivalent to 500mg Ascorbic acid)
For people who had low ferritin before - how much iron did you take and what form? Is what he is taking enough? The Ferrograd is just something I grabbed from Boots so wasn't a very informed choice.
Thanks so much in advance - your advice is so valuable to us
