Re: Anyone else low in iron?

I decreased my meat intake, too, and later became very low in iron, as well as B12. It's been determined I cannot get sufficient B12 any other way than home injections, so I do those once a week, combined with Folic Acid for my CFS.

Has your doctor recommended iron IVs? Mine sent me to the hematologist for those, but I was too scared of the possible adverse reactions, so I seem to be slowly raising it on 3 or 4 iron pills per day. I have to take very low doses because it makes my teeth dark if I take too much at once.
