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!

Iron- 35

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.

White DOve,

How does the iron infusion work.

Is that an injection??

It is hooked up like an IV in your arm. The one that they give me takes about 30 minutes to empty. They do it in the doctor's office. The doctor who does mine is a hematologist.

Hi Liz,

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.
