2Yrs Gluten Free And Low Ferritin

30 January 2013 - 02:29 PM

Hello All!

Due to a confirmed dx of Celiacs, I have been gluten free for just over 2 years. The results of recent blood work indicate a very low Ferritin level with normal Hgb, (here in Canada: range is 15 - 300 and mine is 13).

What is the experience of others with similar levels after this length of time gluten free? I am wondering how long it takes for the intestines to be healed enough to absorb iron? This is why I was originally tested for celiacs, because of a low iron count despite supplements. Of note, I still take supplements and try to eat iron enriched food daily.

Thanks so much and keep in touch.....
