Hi all.
I just found out this week that I have anemia. (My dr had the blood test done after I went in for depression (I am very depressed, listless, can't focus, going on for months). So I'm now taking a low dose of Paxil which seems to be helping.)
My numbers are Hemoglobin 8.9 and Ferritin 2.
My dr seemed concerned but just said I should take 1 or 2 tablets of iron sulfate a day and get another blood test in 3 months. Oh, and to take a stool softener since it will cause constipation.
I was mildly anemic during my 2nd pregnancy, so I know about the basics -- foods I should eat, etc. I am a low-carber, by the way, (or used to be, though these days I can't seem to not munch crackers & stuff) so I already eat a lot of meat.
Anyway, any advice on what I should do, if anything, apart from the 1 or 2 tablets of ferrous sulfate?
I noticed a lot of mention of slowFE -- I saw that in the store and it was wicked expensive -- what's so great about it?
Thanks in advance.
