Don't worry about it, honestly I'm sorry I caused you any upset.
I've observed there's a strong link between hormonal imbalances, low Vit D, and low ferritin / iron. I don't understand the connection yet, but I think it's my case my low ferritin is due to low progesterone: progesterone is needed for iron absorption.
Could you simply try eating more beef? Or, some people freeze chopped liver and take it as pills! That would be infinitely better than an iron sup.
There's emerging research that fish oil isn't as healthy as once thought. The reason it reduces inflammation is because it suppresses the immune system. The reduction in inflammation makes people feel better almost instantly, but in the long term the oil can make you much sicker.
"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
