Hello, I am male, 24, and I have iron deficiency anemia which I cannot cure or treat.
I've been to the dr's and they've checked my upper and lower gi tract and found no abnormalities or an explanation for the low iron levels.
They suggest taking iron tablets, which I do. I've been taking them for more than 8 months now, with no improvement.
I've tried many different brands of iron. I took it with orange juice, vitamin C and B vitamins, always on an empty stomach 1 hour before eating.
Beyond this point, the doctor has no suggestion for me at all. So I stumped as to what can be done.
The fatigue is so strong, I can barely work. Hobbies feel like chores and I just have no mood for anything in life.
Am I doomed? Is there nothing I can do? Maybe it's just my doctor who might be missing something? Maybe there are some rare conditions that could be looked at?
