Last year I had anemia, with quite low tests, hb at 8.4, but the only answer I got was to use iron pills and eat red meat. This was in june last year, it took me app 8 months to get fine levels again, and ordinary iron pills didn't help a lot, actually it was floradix that helped me in the end. Prior to the anemia I had no visible blood in the BM, and i just saw a little fresh blood on the toiletpaper now and then. Even if you are low in iron it doesn't mean you are bleeding from somewhere, does it? Of course you need to be examined from top to toe, being on such low levels are not healthy and it sure is a reason. The reason is often low B 12 or that the intestines can't take care of the iron within the food passing because there is an inflamational activity. Anyway, I hope you'll get infusions, you can't have a good, functional life having such low levels, you sure have low energy and fatique. Take care!

Use home made scd yoghurt containing a lot of probiotics - a benefit for the intestines. I don't use white sugar. No yeast in glutenfree, homemade breads.
