Great news today.
I got some 6-month blood work back today & my iron levels (my worst side effect) are WAY UP!!
Here's my levels in the past:
Jun 21 '06, 12:08PM Iron 14 L 30-160 mcg/dl
Aug 16 '06, 18:33PM Iron 18 L 30-160 mcg/dl
Sep 18 '06, 18:15PM Iron 29 L 30-160 mcg/dl
So I was psyched today when I got this:
Mar 19 '07, 10:29AM Iron 201 H 30-160 mcg/dl
WOO HOO!!! 201!! I'm so pumped. My primary care doc said at my age I should be in the hundreds range - so that's good!
It's so great to know that the diet is working for me. What's funny is you'd think I'd be absolutely bursting with energy, but I basically feel the same... I think I was anemic for so long I just got used it -- down the road, I'm sure it would have been a major problem.
Anyway - happy day for me!
