Thumbs up The old Welshman

my iron levels finaly made it below 3000, now they float between 2300 and 2800. I have IBS and Chron's and some days I can't take the ExJade, it can upset your stomach. My doctor does not like the herbal idea, neither do I. that's the best I can tell you, hang in there. The only advice I can give you is, don't let it run your life, keep smiling, and don't let it run your life.
82 yr. old male. Diagnosed in 2003. Started Blood infusion 1/5/2004, average of 2 units every 2 weeks. Inject Procrit weekly 40,000 ML. I have had 344 units of PRC. E Mail leojean@comcast.net
