Eloise86--At the same time it is most important not to make your guts sick inside, iron can be very abrasive. You really need to find an iron supplement that is GI friendly, many scripts are available OTC behind the pharmacy, you have to ask for it. My system got so messed up with ferris sulfate that it gave me enteritis for 3 months and I ended up in the ER. My colon was so inflamed and I had nausea from that for months. You do need high iron, but it needs to be well tolerated by you. If you have a bad reaction discontinue it and try something else.

The form of B-12 should be Methyl -Verses- Cyano in sublingual form, under the tongue, liquid or tabs that dissolve. It is well absorbed. Jarrow is a brand that is recommended or any form of Methyl will do.

Yes, after 26 years without Heme iron I can see how that could happen. I don't eat red meat myself for probably 30 years now. I do on occasion try to eat a little meat, since my ferritin doesn't want to go up. I have to hide it in my food with sauces or sandwiches. There are only a couple that I can even try, I just don't like it. Heme iron is so well absorbed, it's a shame that we need it so much. Your new book sounds like a good one. I guess this is why you are low in B-12 too. Best of luck to you and keep us posted. FLFLOWERGIRL:)
