Can anyone recommend a good multi vitamin w/ iron or an iron supplement? I am 11 yrs post gastric bypass and my iron levels are way too low, I just got my lab results back today, will be talking with my Dr on Monday. Thank you!

I see a hematologist. I get iron infusions about once a year. Ferritin at 5 cannot be corrected with oral iron.
I get the most benefit with Proferrin, but I would ask your doctor to refer you to a hematologist if your doctor cannot recommend an iron infusion.

How does the iron infusion work.
Is that an injection??

I take a tonic liquid solution. I think tonics are better than tablets.
The one over here is called Floradex. It doesn't taste very nice, but a quick gulp and you're all set for iron and vitamins for the day.
