  • Hi Sylvi, I know just how you feel I've been on iron tablets for anaemia for the past 4 weeks, I also am very tired all the time, this is the 3rd time for me becoming anaemic in the last couple of years. Feel your pain.


    Lady B 😊

  • Just a thought - have you been screened for coeliac disease? I was anaemic for years and constantly taking iron tablets until my GP finally decided to screen me for coeliac disease. Once properly diagnosed and on the gluten free diet, I have had absolutely no problems with low iron, folate or B12 since. You do have to be eating a full gluten containing diet for the blood tests to be accurate though.

  • I had bariatric surgery last year for weight loss Earthwitch and this is more than likely the cause of it. I was told it was one of the side effects. I am seeing my dietician on Monday and we are going to discuss this.xxxxx

  • Sorry you are feeling so rough. Hope the tablets help.

  • Sylvi.

    So sorry all this has come to light.No wonder you are tired and fed up.

    Do they know what's causing this anaemia,there has got to be a reason for it recurring so often? Iron tablets are ok but they have their own little side effects too from what I can remember of my experience with them.

    I really hope you can get this licked pretty soon,and get back to your usual cheerful self.

    Please take care.



  • It is the surgery that is the cause of my problems darling. I am seeing the dietician on Monday and we are going to have a chat about it.xxxx
