Feeling poo yet again I thought having more b12 would help however this hasn’t happened ... I’m taking iron meds 3 times aday as prescribed via my gp but iron level isn’t going up but down I feel tired all the time have to push myself to do most things life is very stressful please can anyone help with what else I can do ...

I’m taking vitamins on top of this To try to help my eating high in iron foods but again nothing I’m lost as to what to do I’ve asked for more testing...

I have PA is this why I don’t know ???????

Just a thought, are you taking vitamin D or had it tested recently? Having been extremely low myself, I know how crappy it can make you feel. If you are taking it, are you taking enough? And with co-factors?

Hi

As a fellow B12 sufferer I understand, your Iron levels could take a couple of years to restore but thinking about your b12 are you taking folate (folic acid) with your b12 as this is essential just a thought.

Having PA does affect your ability to absorb iron. Also having PA causes us to have either no or very little stomach acid. This causes a lot of problems and again affects iron absorption as iron likes an acidic stomach. You could try taking it with orange juice as this helps absorption. If all else fails you may need an iron infusion. I had one and it worked quite well although I till supplement with Spatone every day. I wish you well.
