Kathy - Regarding your severe anemia... How much iron were you taking before you were diagnosed?
I guess I am officially anemic (as of 5/09) since thats when I got my last set of labs and my iron was just below the normal range. My january labs were fine...away I had only been taking 18mg once a day. Now I take between 58mg - 76mg broken up in 2 or 3 doses.
My doctor never really advised what I should increase too but through research I found that the 58mg was acceptable and a do a little extra when I'm on my period. I've been doing this for almost 2 month and plan to go back for labs in late July to see how I've in prove.
