Chirley, thanks that's very interesting. Did you start supplementing with copper and if so did that resolve the anemia?
Caregive, Glad to hear Exjade is helping your husband. And the tips are good. I try to avoid meat, especially beef. And also if and when I eat meat I take apolactoferrin to help bind the iron in my digestive tract. Anybody tried that? Drinking milk when consuming iron-containing foods can help too, I've heard.
Marlene, as you point out, chemo can deplete many things. Just had my Vit D checked and it is normal, low normal but at least normal.
