Iron deficiency, anaemia and iron supplementing

Iron deficiency, anaemia and iron supplementing

Chances are, if you’ve been told your iron levels are low by your doctor, you went straight to the chemist to get an iron supplement. There probably wasn’t much thought on the form of iron, whether your gut will absorb it, how much to take, what not to take your iron with, how long it will take to get your iron levels up and what the differences are between all the iron supplements. And more often than not, women take iron for months without minimal improvement on their iron levels.

Let's all become iron-literate, so we know what optimal levels we want to maintain on a blood test, and how to do it.
