Hi Fuzzy, Sorry you're having such a hard time. Been there. Totally agree with Bethzaring. You can eat a ton of iron rich food that will do no good if it cant be absorbed. Shame your doc couldn't advise.

BTW, Anyone else heard that Spinach is no higher in iron than any other green veg. Apparently they got the decimal place wrong when they worked out the equation???

Don't know if true, but I've always been told that any vegetation from the ocean is invariably highly concentrated with iron. Maybe Popeye the Sailorman was actually drinking cans of Seaweed, not spinach, as his power-up potion??

Iron-rich diet?

Helloooooo wilted spinach salad with beef tenderloin medallions, bleu cheese, and portabello mushrooms!

PS: Mushrooms are high in copper, which will aid the absorption of the iron in the greens and red meat. ;)

3.5 mgs in a cup of cooked spinach (and yes, "wilted" counts) isn't bad, the operative is the absorption enhancement, which is where the 'shrooms come into the equation. ;)

Thanks for all of this - I have been doing my best to stick to the right foods and get on the right path etc and have had another blood text for which I get the results on Thursday afternoon so fingers crossed there is some improvement

Trail mix...really. My sister's iron levels went up to normal just from that small change and eating more beef.
