Unknown Cause of Iron Deficiency & B12 Anemia
I am 28 years old women i have 5 children. 2 years ago my B12,and folate levels were low so I need injection.Then I was ok for 2 years, about 3 months after I had my son I started brusing easily, my GP did bloods and my iron and B12 were low again, I was started on iron tablets and B12 injection.A couple of months later my levels were low again. I have had lots of test but no reson can be found for this.
These findings occur as a result of the blockage gluten has on the bowel absorption of these nutrients.
