If you are not able to absorb oral iron, it may be given intravenously. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

Dx vit d insufficiency, levels now gone up to reasonable level, but calcium gone high - can vit d3 supplements cause serum calcium results?
Vitamin D Metabolism: is tied closely with calcium levels through the parathyroid gland. PTH (parathyroid hormone) increases calcium by removing it from bone, increasing renal reabsorption and converting Vit D(D2 or D3) to Calcitriol. Calcitriol increases the amount of calcium that is absorbed from you gut. This shouldn't happen unless your parathyroid gland is overactive. Would ask your Dr. about this possibility. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
