Is iron absorbed in the colon or small intestine
The small intestine absorbs all our nutrients.
I have never been tested for celiac. I'm going to be making an appt with the hematologist again as well. Hope you get your anemia in check. It's the last thing for me to get taken care of on this looooong journey!
DX UC in 2005. Family history of UC.
Tried every drug-even Remicade-Tried diets-nothing worked-wanted my life back!
Step 1: J-pouch surgery (Laparoscopic restorative proctocolectomy w/ temporary diverting loop ileostomy) 6-25-10
