I Baganda taking iron pills 5 months ago because my ferritin levels were 9 at the time. I just had blood tests done again and my ferratin levels are now 32. My RBC was 4.46. Range 4 - 5.20. HGB was 14.6. Range is 12 - 16. HCT was 45.5. Range is 36 - 46. MCV 102. Range is 80 - 100. RDW was 12.8 range is 11.5 - 14.5. I'm afraid of taking too much iron plus I've been getting stomach pain acid and having a couple bowel movements a day. When do you know it's time to stop taking iron. Thank you.
