Which is more probable that my iron deifciency is making me retain 10 kg of water or food allergies are making me retain the water ?

Which is more probable that my iron deifciency is making me retain 10 kg of water or food allergies are making me retain the water ?

Salt: How about hidden sources of salt such as soy sauce and eating out where everything is salted. I would say that salt is more likely to make you retain water than iron deficiency or food allergies. Calculate how much salt you take in a day if possible and see if you take under 2 grams a day. Try substituting with salt free options. ...Read more

Hold all medicines: To start with, although iron preparations usually don't cause allergy, could be a preservative or a non active ingredient, watch what you eat as well, can use a different antihistaminic, above all you might be having a dry skin, use a cream soap, moisturize your whole body right after bathing, every day or every other day, if all don't work, see your doctor, goodluck. ...Read more

Why do I feel intense fatigue after taking a multivitamin (with or without iron)? It lasts a whole day. Have no allergies & eat healthy.

Why do I feel intense fatigue after taking a multivitamin (with or without iron)? It lasts a whole day. Have no allergies & eat healthy.

Very low energy: Need to be assessed by your doctor. The multivitamin you take is not the root cause. I see that you have very low estrogen. Please see you doc who may check your other hormones and help[p you to bring them back into balance. See Suzanne Somers book on natural hormone replacement but be guided by doc. Peace and good health. ...Read more

Tested -ve for wheat allergy but great relief to gas and lethargy  and digestion aftr gluten free diet.low b12, iron ,vit d. Am i gluten sensitive?

Likely: Wheat allergy is different from gluten sensitivity which requires tests like IgAtTG or genetic markers to detect. With low B12, iron etc, I suspect that you do have gluten intolerance and need to avoid all gluten. If possible get to a GI doctor since the IgA tTG is unreliable when off gluten. Avoidance and supplement for nutrient and vitamin replacement is the key. ...Read more
