Hi all, just to say thank you for all your previous comments regarding my recent Endoscopy/Colonoscopy. I have had the biopsy results back and all is normal, thank goodness. It appears they checked for Coeliac disease and Giardiasis which are both clear. Have seen my GP and she tells me that the low blood iron is caused by either bleeding from my Hiatus Hernia or from the narrowing that has occurred in my bowel from the Diverticulosis which has both just been diagnosed as a result of the recent tests. I have been put on another iron tablet and more medication for the Gerd, which is quite bad. I don't seem to be tolerating the iron tablets very well and they are leaving me with a severe tight tummy and bloating. I will give it a few more days; but feeling very uncomfortable. If any of you can offer any insight into iron medication, I would very much appreciate it.
Hope you are all ok and having a relatively pain free day.
