Iron deficiency anaemia
I have been low iron since i was born. Only recently has my doctor been checking my levels and trying to raise my iron from anaemia. My doctor says that i should be getting between 800 - 1000 mg of iron a day. That means i have to take an iron pill four times a day. So when should i take the pills? Do i take them right after or before meals? I am just wondering how to improve my iron results? Please help me.
@anitra To get the most out of your iron pills they should be taken on an empty stomach even a glass of orange juice afterwards I guess the vitamin c helps with the absorption of the iron. It took me a while to get adjusted to that many pills, I had to eat with it at first because they made me so nauseous. I would suggest you to ask your DR. About an iron infusion that would be a lot faster than months’ worth of pills.
