Lisarose

2Yrs Gluten Free And Low Ferritin

Recommended Posts

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.....

Do you eat meat, Lisarose, or are you a vegetarian? It is often difficult for vegetarians to get enough iron, especially from supplements. Have you ever had an iron infusion (where you don't have to put it through your digestive system?
