Hey guys haven’t posted in quite sometime just had a quick question… just came from my new doctor ( alternative medicine doc) he’s suppose to be a great doctor and is very well informed however…
I’ve been struggling with my health leading up to this visit with this new doctor and we’re trying to figure some shit out - my most recent bloods he ordered, Showed a significantly low iron and low ferritin and I’m having symptoms associated with the two.
He suggests massive iron therapy to get this numbers up. Obviously being on trt I’ve always been told to watch my iron intake and I was always a frequent blood donor up until the past year as my hemotocrit has been very stable 48/49 and doesn’t ever go higher like it use too so I don’t bother donating anymore. (My hemo was fine on this test with the low iron )
My concern is obviously taking this iron and having my hemo go to dangerous levels,
Unfortunately I didn’t bring up my concern during the appointment it wasn’t really crossing my mind for whatever reason and I would like to get some input on this decision
