wow, I have been on liquid iron for about 6 months. My iron was originally at 24. I just got it tested and it has gone down to 17. Ouch!  Does anyone else have this problem or have a good solution?

I have low iron since I was in my late twenties. Speak to your doctor, maybe he can recommend a higher dosage.

Blackstrap molasses is one of the highest sources for iron. I recommend doing some research on its benefits and speaking to your doctor about it.

I use MegaFoods Blood Builder supplements. Keeps my iron up and it doesn't have the nasty side effects of other iron pills. For sure talk to your Dr about it. Good luck :)

FeraMax 150 on Aug 05, 2015 @ 01:14 pm

My Ob-Gyn recommended FeraMax 150. I take one a day, with my pre-natal vitamin. I really notice the difference when I forget to take it. It can be quite pricey since it's not covered by insurance. The Real Canadian Superstore has it at the best price.

Take iron with Vitamin C, and eat more foods with heme-iron. on Aug 10, 2015 @ 11:27 pm

My naturopathic doctor who is also a nutritionist in Toronto, told me to take Vitamin C with iron, because it improves the absorption of iron. She gave me a vitamin C supplement, to take with my iron. She also informed me that it takes several months or longer for the iron levels to get back to normal, but it eventually did when we retested. She also gave me a list of foods to eat, that contain a form a iron that's easy for my body to absorb. Your body absorbs more iron from meat than it does from other sources. If you are vegan, you may need to increase your intake of iron-rich, plant-based foods to absorb the same amount of iron as someone who eats meat. I recommend you to see a Naturopath that specializes in nutritional counselling. I learned so much from her, and feel healthier than ever. Goodluck!
