I have a struggled with anemia-like symptoms for as long as I can remember. We had my iron levels tested several times throughout high school, but it always came back within the ranges of normal.
My iron numbers were pretty low with both pregnancies, but, with KP, I was seeing a midwife with a more alternative outlook on medicine. She recommended that I cut out wheat because the gluten can block the body’s ability to absorb iron.
In the last 6 months, I have gone from not being able to get up in the morning to having more energy than I ever remember having. The change has been absolutely shocking.
