Boost Iron levels with what?

Hello everyone, I am interested in knowing people's tried and tested iron supplements. I have low ferritin. I haven't had a test recently but it is always at the bottom of the range but within range so they won't prescribe. I take Spatone but not sure how many sachets? I struggle with Ferrous Fumerate and it causes lots of stomach ache and nausea. Thanks in advance everyone!

Auntbessy I couldn't tolerate iron supplements, not Gentle Iron, nor even 5mg Ferritin supplement. I started to eat liver once a week (120-140g) and that has raised my level.


I use the Spatone,, and the dose is 1 sachet per day,,,never over do medications,,and the side effects are constipation,,which is terrible,,,,ttfn from karen.
