long story short, i am in a situation where i cannot cook red meat in the house. i eat some at work but i can only eat so much.
i also have a weird iron panel, indicating some iron absoprtion issues. low tibc, low iron etc.
what kind of iron supplements would be good for someone with a low tibc? does anyone here take slow release iron?
Sorry. I cannot speak to the supplement with expertise but in case you want to supplement or iron in other ways I would suggest;
Eat some rare deli roast beef that you do not have to have at home. Also...you can get iron from other meats too.
Get some cast iron cookware and then all your foods you cook in it will give you some iron.
I have issues with iron absorption too. Bifera (I get it from amazon) literally changed my life--I noticed a big difference in my energy levels and fatigue issues after I started taking it. I had taken traditional iron supplements before, with no noticeable effect. Also, I haven't had any GI issues with Bifera, though some people still do.
I would get some liver paté from your gourmet grocer/Whole Foods.
Otherwise, I like Floradix tablets (they don't stain your teeth like the liquid.)
THe Floradix liquid contains wheat germ extract; tablets contain corn starch, lactose, maltodextrin, etc. (depends how sensitive you are to grains).
shouldnt your doctor be the one to deal with this...finding you a supplement stuff??
