... Dear baker, Low iron may only mean that she needs to eat iron rich food. My iron was low recently and I looked up 'iron rich foods' and chose the ones I prefer to eat and in two weeks a blood test showed my iron level is normal. Iron pills can be rough on the digestion system. Iron is not meant to be digested in pill form. Rather than pills (iron is usually not easily... (1 replies)
... I was told that I have a 10... I have no idea what that means. I got labs done and then my primary care doctor put me on iron pills twice a day everyday.

... It's been a week and a half now since my iron infusion. I'm finally starting to feel a little better. Still running a low grade temp every day and that is certainly not helping me feel any better. This has been going on for 5.5 weeks now...since my hysterectomy.
