Hi everyone, my iron level is still low dispite me eating 2 iron pills per day for about 5months. Iron level don't seems to increase. Any other ways to help to increase iron level?

How much of an increase do you want to see? Do you have an underlying blood condition like anemia or thalassemia? What does your gynae recommend? Eating more iron doesnt mean your body can absorb the full amount.

I have thalassemia, a blood condition. My red blood cell count was only 10.2. But I cannot take a lot of iron because my body cannot absorb. I have been on iron since week 13 till before I gave birth and my red blood count only increased by 1.
