Hello, :)

I have several medical conditions and will be undergoing and upper (and possibly lower) GI testing to try and determine the reason for the iron loss.

I have been on Nexium (a PPI) for GERD and LPR for about a year now. I also take a small dose of aspirin, as well as other medications, daily. Some of these meds are known to have GI side effects. My question: would any damage from the medication be seen during the endoscopy?
What tests are used to determine whether the low iron is a result of iron malabsorption or an iron depletion?

I find the posts here very informative. I wonder if any of you have had an experience with a cardio-renal-anemia syndrome. I was shocked to learn of its existence.

thank you,
