The best iron to get is from red meat or an iron pill,this is the best Iron to get its gentle on your tummy...are you losing your hair? If you are not ..you will if you don't get your iron up soon...I know this from experience and it's lack of ferritin iron that's a major cause of hair loss in women...if you go to the doctor make sure they test you for ferritin iron...
all the best 😊

@Starlight13 : I have heard different things. Some say real thin, or rolling or different terms. They did not want to deal with them and turned me down.

You lucky girl having to much hair 😊 well you can't have a ferritin iron problem for sure...but your still low on some other iron...hope you get it up...low iron can cause tiredness and anemia....take a good multi vitamin with a little iron in it..not the one one in the pic.

We tried just recently… not one open slot to register in the Woodlands… guess the early birds got the worm… we were hoping to donate, and be tested for antibodies… we had heard that O+ blood was a fighter against this horrific virus…

@titus12tnt12 : o+ is needed all the time, regardless. i am constantly being called to give blood because of being o+ lol. it's nice to be "popular". they also ask for whole red cells which takes a little longer to donate (approx 30 mins vs 15).
