My wife has been struggling with ferritin levels and iron stores. She has supplemented with iron and while on iron supplementation her levels rise. Once she is off iron supplementation her levels drop back down again to below clinical values.
She has had a bone marrow biopsy and it indicated that she does not "store" here iron well if at all. Ironically all other RBC values are within range including hemaglobin, hematocrit, etc., with the exception of here platelet count astronomically high.
She is negative for lukemia and or any other sinister culprit.
I have read that Vitamin C supplementation can improve absorption and retention of iron.
I'm looking for some credible data supported suggestions to improve iron absorption and stores.
