Iron deficiency anemia...need to learn about this.

My SO has this, severe loss of breath and other symptoms. Just got home from 2 days in hospital, they did a transfusion and gave her iron IV and home now taking Ferrous Gluconate Tablets 324 mg twice a day.

The blood test numbers are:

RBC 3.29 L (went up to 3.67 after hospital visit and transfusion and iron IV)

Hemoglobin 7.1 (went up to 8.4, normal for her in the past 14.0)

Hematocrit 25.6% (went up to 28.6% post hospital)

Ferritin 3 (no further testing)

NT-proBNP 567 (went down to 426)

Not sure what other numbers I should provide, I have tons of tests here. Hoping someone here can give me their experiences and other than red meat and other known high iron foods, what are you doing to get better?

I guess if the hemoglobin number is under 8 you shouldn't fly without supplemental oxygen? We have a trip soon, not sure what to do.

Gladly accept any input, it is all new to us. Thanks...(CRAVES ice and chews on it all day)

Of course we are following up with docs and more tests and will ask many questions, just thought I would talk to folks about experiences.

DeJoy is staying then?

I am no reacting to anything I read today, I just assume this is the case for the obvious reason.

It will make it near impossible to win elections when mailed ballots are purposely withheld, I am getting angry.

My tweet about "the slap"


In that one I included Kathy Griffin to see if I could get a reaction...

If Garland doesn't indict trump, if Manhattan DA doesn't, can I expect certain folks

to say they were WRONG???

Hey, how about this, instead of me worrying about whether or not the same individuals who NEVER miss a chance to attack those of us who do worry about this shit, that they will apologize, how about they just LOUDLY express FRUSTRATION about the INACTION of these departments.

Or would that be too much to ask?

Believe me, what I want more than ANYTHING IN LIFE (almost) is to have to come back here and say




after Garland or DA indicts the traitorous scumbag.

But this NEVER ENDING "be patient" shit is MADDENING. You can be patient, so to speak, and LOUD at the same time so folks like Garland or Alvin Bragg know that we EXPECT this of them. We already know he is guilty of crimes.

I sure hope to FUCK the powerful and wealthy people who have the EARS of Bragg and Garland and others in that position are not being quiet!

Or do some of you think time is not of the essence?

Clarence and Ginny Thomas you no good fucking traitor scumbags

Can you imagine if a liberal judge's spouse did this and it was clear the spouse and justice were in agreement to overturn the election.

Manhattan DA must be recalled, please.

You all know why I hope.

Trump skates again, Manhattan DA will not pursue charges.

A top prosecutor who abruptly left the Manhattan DA's office said in his resignation letter there's 'no doubt' that Trump committed 'numerous' felonies


Knew it.

Is the new DA dirty?

On the take?

I refuse to believe this was done for proper reasons.

Anyone know what the DNC is doing in preparation for when, not if, GOP refuses to certify any

election they lose in a red state?

When this happens, it will be chaos.

I am the ONLY one talking about it that I know of. I talk about it everywhere.

Please show me that I am not the only one, I need to know somebody is preparing for this.

Trump wants to be able to kill his opponents, we are his opponents.


I also think he admired him greatly. I think he wanted to be able to kill whoever spoke out against him. So I think it was a lot of that. In my experience with him, he loved the dictators, he loved the people who could kill anyone, including the press.

Trump press sctry said this.

Imagine if Obama press scty said this.

GOP are enemies of the human race.
