I've wondered where the numbers have to be where a dr finally says "OK you have to have an infusion"
Also I'm amazed that one infusion could last so long. I know we have iron stores but I didn't know they lasted so long
I've been anemic with my numbers hovering at 10 and other things high or low in my CBC (hemocrit, etc), I take 25 mgs of "gentle" iron now and then. I'm also tired and have no energy. This is the first time I have read about someone being told to take as much as 325! I haven't even figured out WHEN to take the one 25mg capsule it as iron doesn't play well with calcium. The other thing I should mention is that I do get a B12 shot every month. And yea my iron, ferritin etc is always borderline
