Our expert says:
Iron supplements are not too bad - the one that is often recommended is called Chela-Fer, but there are others with the same active ingredient that seem to work as well. The thing is, you have to really know whether you need it or not because taking them when the iron or ferritin levels are normal can lead to excess levels and things like nausea, stomach cramps, headaches etc.
So it's important to avoid taking them for the sake of taking them. If it's a more serious case, needed big increases, then an injection is sometimes prescribed, but that's only when a doctor administers it based on tests. otherwise, it's healthy diet and possibly, supplements.
