Ron has tried all forms of iron....slow release, ferrous glulconate, prescript
ion iron...anything out there he has tried. His reaction isn't a GI reaction but rather his blood pressure rises, he becomes flushed and because he is spinal cord injured, his legs become very spastic. I know this isn't the usual reaction to iron. Even prior to the PCa diagnosis, we didn't eat too much red meat and his hemaglobin was always in the 14-15 range very normal. We certainly aren't totally against red meat in our diet.
My husband is 60 years old.
