Lynete--Welcome!! Steph gave you some excellent pointers. And, I do believe that this is the fastest was to absorb iron. Can you post your labs? A Hgb at 7 and under would require a blood transfusion and IV iron later if you cannot take oral supplements. Are you sure that you can't take them? We thought that I couldn't take them either, but after a hard long road I was able to tolerate a certain kind made for people with problems and GI issues. A GI doc would know this and help you. Maybe IV and transfusion is the only way to go for you thenyou would need a Hematologist. If you can post your labs and mabe we can be of further help. Sorry that you are feeling so bad. Please get some help right away!! FLFLFOWERGIRL:)
