Anemia Question

Almost a month ago I started taking Iron Supplements because I was diagnosed with IDA.  Since then I've had a colonoscopy and Endoscopy which both fine (now waiting for a GYN appt.), and have begun taking 65mg of Iron twice daily with 500mg of Vitamin C.   My hemoglobin when first diagnosed was 9.7.   after three weeks of taking Iron Supplements my hemoglobin as increased to 11.2 but I am still feeling very tired.  Wondering why my hemoglobin seems to be improving but I still feel tired?  Any insight is appreciated.

Hi there!

Tiredness or fatigue is a very vague symptom and could be linked to psychological stress, most systemic issues, nutrient deficiencies etc. I would suggest consulting a primary care physician for a detailed evaluation. After a cause is identified, it can eb managed accordingly.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
