Hi Florida6 - what the others said is correct. I just wanted to add something regarding your diet. I'm not sure whether when not eating meat, dairy and eggs you replace the nutrients from these food groups by other things? Often the replacement foods are not of an equally high nutritional content. A lot of vegetarians and even non-vegetarians have the issues you are experiencing. Often a slight change in diet can do a world of good. If you can't possibly eat meat, dairy or eggs and your current situation is solely diet related then i'd supplements will be with you for life.

A girl at my work couldn't eat red meat. She simply didn't like it. When she got married her husband was a meat eater and he expected meat for dinner and in particular red meat. She now likes it, but only when it's in a stir fry or in a casserol type meal so that there is some form of flavouring surrounding the meat. Her iron is going up on it's own since she's changed her diet.

It's your choice, nobody will force you to eat meat, but in addition to your ferritin and B12, you also need to check your Vit D levels as Vit D is in meat, eggs and dairy. If you wish to stay vegetarian, it might benefit talking to a nutritionist or finding a site online to offer assistance so you are sure to be getting the most out of your foods.

As for doctors, they will blame whatever is easiest and so it's obvious your doctor pointed the finger at the 4 children. Of course kids can be wearing, but even more so when you have depleted energy due to being low in things.

Hope you start feeling better soon :)
