Is water fasting helpful in iron deficiency anemia ?
Hello, I am currently 16 years old with mild Iron deficiency anemia . I have heard wonders about water fasting, which includes the claim that it will also help to cure my condition. Is this true? Or will my anemia actually get worse if I choose to water fast?
I am told I have iron deficiency anemia yet my CBC is normal and my iron levels and sat are wnl. I have extreme fatigue. Thoughts? I eat meat, etc. I am on celebrex. No tarry stools. Very remote hx gi bleed ulcer after asa. Should I stop all nsaids including celebrex? My pcp is having me take supplemental iron which I don t understand if my iron levels and binging are wnl. Help!
I have iron deficiency anemia. I was at 7.5 hemoglobin two weeks ago. After taking ferrous sulphate for two weeks I m at 8.5. I am still extremely fatigued, have headaches, no appetite, sleep 18 hours a day, I feel dizzy and almost passed out. I have a desk job but it is very stressful. Should I take more time off until my hemoglobin is closer to 10? Does resting help with getting the numbers up?
Hi, I just turned 37. I have recently had blood tests which show very low iron levels and i was sent to have ultrasound on my lymnodes. Dr feels i may have nodules however ultra sound tech said all looks fine. Dr felt that i may have auto immune disease however various further tests and numerius check up/follow up appointments will be needed to pin point and rule out. With all of this, in the past few months i nave noticed that my feet (mainly left foot) and ankle area are swelling up.... so much so that my Mum noticed-- I have always bad quite thin feet/ankles despite my weight. My feet/ankles seriously make me look like i have cankles!! To which I am mortified. I am overweight and am not the most avtive person. A young friend of mine died from an aneurysm last year and also having burried 2 family members already this year I m in constant fear and a heightened state of anxiety that this could be some kind of silent killer. Any ideas on what is bringing on my cankles?? Thanking you in advance for your times and any insglt help tt woukd be much appreciated .......????
my friend has some problem like rectal prolaps but after some blood tests and MRI defogegram she had only less red blood cells due to iron deficiency. After treatment she still has the same problem. What should she do. Or which doctor should be refered?
I have had chronic diarrhea for over 3 years. I have no other symptoms except iron deficiency anemia (currently being treated w/ monthly transfusions). I've had all the blood, stool, urine tests, a colonoscopy, an upper endoscopy, and nothing has turned up. I'm able to stay hydrated, I eat a normal diet, and have a fairly sedentary to mildly active lifestyle (walk the dogs, housework, etc, but no regular exercise or physically demanding interests). The only medication I take is lisinopril for mild hypertension. 20 mg/day. I am minus 1 kidney due to traumatic injury (30 years ago), and I have a Lap Band for 4 years. Do I need to worry about this? 47 yr old female.
I have difficulty urinating (I still retain a lot of urine), chronic constipation, episodes of blood in the stools, hemmorhoids, occasional bouts of muscle fatigue, iron deficiency anemia. I had cancer of the kidney 11 years ago and had one of the kidneys removed. I am gettting a colonoscopy tomorrow and having the hemmorhoids removed. Do you think this is going to solve my problems? I am concerned about having either colon or prostate cancer or both. I am 57 years old.
