Iron Supplements (Definition)

Effective treatment for anemia is generally taking an iron supplement by mouth. Iron pills are large and difficult for some women to swallow. If so, you can usually break them in half and have one half with breakfast and the other with lunch. Drink a lot of water and eat foods that are high in fiber as iron can be constipating. You doctor may also prescribe ...Read more

Omeprazole 20mg cannot take wif iron tablet (sangobion)? I already take for 2mths together with iron tablet but wif 2hrs apart. Scare iron not absorb

You're OK: Iron is absorbed in a more acid environment, that's why you need to separate the pills. But ppis like Omeprazole can lower your acid so far that they impact iron absorption all day. They also can make osteoporosis worse, lead to infections like pneumonia and colitis, and shouldn't be taken forever. If you have reflux, you should consider an antireflux procedure or surgery. ...Read more

Anemia so I take iron tablet (sangobion) for almost 5 mth, everyday take 1 tablet, going to do a retest for blood test next mth. Will I overdose?

Anemia so I take iron tablet (sangobion) for almost 5 mth, everyday take 1 tablet, going to do a retest for blood test next mth. Will I overdose?

Anemia: Not all anemia is caused by iron deficiency- so I would advice you to get a bit work-up to find the cause of your anemia. If you do have iron deficiency anemia- then oral iron may hep you as long as you absorb and tolerate it. Depend on how low your iron is, if you take it once a day for 5 month- I don't think you will overdose. But again, you will have blood work to be done soon, so you will see. ...Read more

I am anemia, I took iron tablet sangobion for 6 weeks. I dun look pale n my face start to look redish, does it mean tat the iron tablet show effect?

It might: If your blood counts are returning to normal (or just improving), you should look "pinker." only real way to know for sure is with follow up blood test. 6 weeks is reasonable time to see if the iron is/has helped. Talk to your dr about repeat blood work. ...Read more

How long does it take for side effects of iron tablets to wear off?

Which side effect?: Constipation is one of the side effects, and it will go away, once you stop taking the pills, though you may address it taking fiber laxative. If you have other side effects, please describe what those are.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

I have had low iron for 3 years and have been on 3 iron tablets and day but my iron is still low and I'm constantly tiered?

I have had low iron for 3 years and have been on 3 iron tablets and day but my iron is still low and I'm constantly tiered?

What's the source?: If you have anemia, you either aren't making enough red blood cells - or you are losing them somehow. With a low iron count, you may be losing iron through blood loss. In a young woman with periods, menstrual blood loss is a likely culprit. But you can lose blood through your bowel movements, in your urine, by bruising, or even nosebleeds. Talk to your doctor to see if you can identify the problem. ...Read more

My husband has anaemia. His BCwas 9.4 he has been on iron tablets for 3 weeks. 1 tablet 3 times a day. BC is now 8 is this normal?

Needs evaluation: Iron deficiency in a man is almost always due to occult (hidden) blood loss, usually from gastrointestinal bleeding. To treat iron deficiency anemia with iron and not look for cause of bleeding is completely inadequate. Perhaps his anemia is not due to iron deficiency. If so, iron tablets will not help. He needs follow up with doctor or a second opinion. ...Read more

My iron level is 24 can I increase it with iron tablets and loads of high iron foods in a month of time?

YES: But to raise the iron in the RED BLOOD CELLS and make more red cells if you are "anemic" requires a high BINDING CAPACITY for IRON and enough FERRITIN to CARRY the iron to the cells!
Its a PART of the story and dietary intake will increase the ironlevel as long as its being absorbed!

Hope this info is useful!
