so for the past couple of weeks I've been feeling very tired. At first I thought I was not drinking enough fluids but that was not the case. My electrolyte levels were normal.
Then my PCP ran a laundry list of bloodwork on me and found my Ferritin level (iron stores) to be very low, 10. I think the normal range is between 20 - 345.
I'm going to see a hematologist today because my PCP recommended I get a few doses of IV Iron infusions. The iron pills I am taking seem to be helping a little bit but he wants to jumpstart the process.
Has anyone else experienced something similar? Which Iron pills do you take? The ones I take seem to come out in my ostomy sometimes.
