... I started off on your typical over the counter iron tablets which constipated me so i stopped taking those. I have heard since then that you can buy something additional to take to soften your stools. ... (7 replies)

... nother thing i found out helps absorb calcium and increases blood levels of ferretin is the essential amino acid called Lysine.

I just had a follow up almost a year after those infusions and my levels are still... (14 replies)

... low iron. To simply rule out whether your low iron is diet related you can slowly incorporate meats back into your diet maybe 3 times per week, keep taking the iron supplements and by the time you find a new doctor and retest you will soon know whether your diet is the culprit or whether it's another issue altogether. ...
