Re: Iron Infusion via IV???

Got my hemoglobin monitor yesterday.

HGB 10.4
HCT 32

Up 2 whole points since starting the Blood Builder, blackstrap molasses and spinach smoothies!!

Appt with my DR today and hoping she will allow a CBC lab draw so I can compare my monitor with the lab results.

Still feeling incredibly great. Made 39 dinners for the freezer since yesterday. Unheard of this late in pregnancy for me!

No swelling in my legs even after being on my feet all day yesterday. I can squat again too!

Re: Iron Infusion via IV???

My Hgb was in the low range (~8 if my memory serves me right). My doctor was worried and recommended Iron Infusion. Well, I did not have any reaction at all, and the infusion did not make a tad bit of difference.
What ultimately made a difference was pills by BloodBuilder. I am not anemic anymore.
