Thanks Indiana. I'm glad to have the name of the iron RX.
One problem is I have an HMO, which means limitations on what they use. Also, it's a pot luck on which doc I see, but at least the last one had the presence of mind to do an iron blood test when I told him my symptoms.
(He also told me that I appeared to be a type A personality when he saw me with my food journal, which was an interesting assumption on his part, LOL!)
I'm even considering buying blackstrap molasses, whatever the heck that is, or maybe cooking up a bunch of chicken livers (YUCK!)
