Too much Iron Pills?

Ask Dr. Wise


Dear Dr. Wise,

I couldn’t give blood last week because my iron was low,by 1 pt. I am now taking Iron pills (325 ) mg’s. I’m taking one a day. Is that too much and should I cut down?

Thank You very much.

DR Wise Answer:

Iron alone will not build up your blood.  Be sure to take B12 supplement, 4000 units of Vitamin D, 500 mg of vitamin C, and some protein food too!
