Re: why is my stomach not absorbing iron
It could be any number of things from gluten intolerance, internal bleeding, insufficient stomach enzymes to digest certain foods.....
At least your doctor is doing something for you and not just sticking you on iron supplements, which is what a lot of doctors do.
When i first found out i was anemic, my doctor didn't do anything, just told me to take some iron pills. Two years and a good doctor later, i found out i had a thyroid condition as well as a pancreatic problem where there weren't sufficient enzymes to digest protein in my diet. All of this led to my iron levels not being able to stay put.
