My doctor had me cut out my iron in my vitamins because of the problem with constipation since I suffer mostly with C. I have been really tired lately and not sure if I'm not getting enough iron in my diet (in fact I know I'm not because all iron rich foods are triggers for me UGH). My doctor never said anything about
how to get iron by other means and when I asked him about
injections, he said that is the last option however did not seem concerned about
testing me. I did get a physical a few months ago however I don't know if they tested my iron levels at that time. This was all done through my GP. I'm wondering now if I should just go to my GI about
this however I feel really silly seeing a specialist about
a possible iron deficiancy when my GP should really be taking care of this. I may consider looking for a new GP (oh, I hate looking for a new doctor anything) but how does anyone else with C get their iron?
