HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT IRON AND/OR SUPPLEMENTS after WLS PLS SEE
Iron is a different matter. Currently my iron and ferritin levels are very low so I am getting an iron shot every 2 weeks. The iron is called Infufer. Ten vials cost me $179.00. This iron no longer comes in a mutli dose package. It contains no preservative so each time I get a shot half a vial gets thrown away. This drives me nuts. I also take oral Proferrin (HEME iron) which costs me $17 + every 10 days.
Add to that my multi vitamins, calcium, vitamin D, vitamin C and Probiotics....
