My Ferritin started out at 10, (ref range 13-150) - it only went up to 13 after months and months of supplementing with Ferrous Sulphate from the doc. I decided to try liquid iron instead so i began taking 2 x Spatone liquid sachets a day (with vitamin C) that i bought from the Chemist. I got my levels up to 43 by mid 2012 and dropped to taking 1 x Spatone liquid sachet a day thinking it would slowly carry on going up - i've just been tested again and it has gone down to 29.
I stopped for a week before the test so i didn't get a false reading but I'm confused how it could have gone back down again when i have been taking one a day? I assumed it would still be slowly going up? Is this a sign of something else being wrong or should i not be worried and just up it to two a day again? Could it be that I need to take two a day again until i get up to an optimal level, then take two one day and one the next to keep at optimal level?
Thanks for any input
