My mom 70yo has diabetes and kidney failure. What cheap iron supplement is best for her? Eating 7-9times/day, low hgb, high sugar level, always hungry

If she is not on D, speak to an endocrinologist to lower her high S, If she is, speak to her nephrologist. ...Read more

Don't know if any researcher has milk this way. ...Read more
