I've just been told my ferritin levels are 17, normal range 24-336. I have to wait until next week to talk to a Dr about it...and I know they won't be vegan friendly with their advice.

I'm terrible with medical things & a bit gutted as I have a very whole foods based diet... I'm panicking, probably unnecessarily, but I'd really appreciate if anyone knows anything.

Does anyone know of vegan friendly iron tablets? I'm presuming this is what I need to boost it up until my levels are acceptable?

Thank you in advance.

I had low iron a couple of years ago due to various health issues. They prescribed non-vegan tablets so I bought Solgar iron bisglycinate instead. I got my levels back up fairly quickly and since then my diet seems to have provided enough iron to keep them stable, but you might need to keep supplementing if that isn't the same for you.

Thanks. I'd seen those when I was doing a bit of research so it's good to know they worked for you. I'm quite interested to see what the doctor says as it's a new one I've never seen before. I've been trawling through vegan for her and vegan for life which has been very informative too.
