Re: Iron thru IV
If you have thalasseima then why are you taking iron supplements? That is a huge no if you have thal because you can have iron build up and might need iron chelation therapy, or cause irreparable damage to your organs. Also, with thal, it affects the oxygen level in your blood so of course your hemoglobin is going to be low. It is genetic! I suggest you do some more research on thalassemia to understand what it is and what you need to do to manage it. You can't cure it but you can manage it. Folic acid, b12 and wheat grass are great supplements to take if you have thal.
The side effects that I had with my iron ivs were bone pain, sore muscles, and dark urine as not all of the iron is absorbed.
