I was severely anemic at one point, and my mom made me "liver soup" and made me drink the broth. I just started coumadin as well, so I couldn't eat any dark leafy greens like spinach or it would interact with the medication. That broth was horrible, didn't taste very good, and smelled like feet. LOL.
I'm glad after a few weeks my blood counts returned to normal. But I was on iron tablets and my mom making me eat weird things to try and get back to normal.
I was diagnosed with Lupus with Antiphospholipid syndrome in Nov 05.
