Hello there.... Iron deficiency can't be corrected overnight. Your father may need to take iron supplements for several months or longer to replenish his iron reserves. Generally, your father start to feel better after a week or so of treatment. Ask your doctor when your father need to return to have your blood rechecked to measure your iron levels....
