GP says iron ferritin (from blood test) is low (I had a 32 days bleed from a colcoscopy procedure on my cervix to remove abnormal cells that made me have like a very heavy period for so long and also had an infection from the procedure, finally the bleeding stopped just over a week ago) my iron ferritin on blood test was shown as 10 u/gl , range 10-291.00 u/gl. GP put me on ferrous fumurate 220 mg 1 tablet three times a day , and I have taken them for 1 week so far the iron tablets.
With this kind of low iron of mine is it possible to have symptoms of fatigue, tired all the time even though I slept and light headeness and a space out feeling?
You had lots of great replies from Saya85 in your previous thread.
Low ferritin will cause fatigue.
The ferrous fumarate tablets may take months to raise your level so you probably wont feel much different after taking them for only 1 week.
You can help raise your level by eating liver regularly, maximum 200g per week due to it's high Vit A content, also liver pate, black pudding, and including lots of iron rich foods in your diet apjcn.nhri.org.tw/server/in...
