Why am i deficient
Apr 2, 2006
I am 43, have regular normal periods, I dont eat red meat but have chicken and fish and some vegetarian meals each week.

My medical history shows that I have low iron levels, at the moment I am below the acceptable level (my hair has been falling out, first time) I have also been low and deficient in b12

I have been checked for intrinisic factor for b12

I dont know why I am always so low or deficient. I drink occasionally.

I have had an anxiety disorder for a few years which probably doesnt help. Sometimes I dont know if my palpitations, headaches, pulsing body are the anxiety or low iron.

Any ideas why Im so low, do I have to take pills all my life. Thanks for any advice.
i know low iron can cause heart palpitations due to lack of oxygen, I have had my heart checked out before and it was the anxiety disorder, thanks guys, just have towork harder at getting more iron, taking a multi vit now. I love my tea and have heard this is bad for absorbtion of iron, how long after a meal can you have a tea or coffee or alcohol,
