I'm 3yrs out. 50 old male. Was 230. Now 130.

Struggling with chronic fatigue and balance problems.

Labs

Copper 20 (was less than 10) / affects iron absorption. Currently doing copper infusions to bring up levels. Hematologist says iron and hemoglobin will recover once copper back in line.

I asked about Iron infusions or possible blood transfusions but hema said not necessary right now.

MY FATIGUE AND UNSTABLENESS ARE ACUTE.

Hemoglobin 9.5

Hemocrit 29

TIBC 262

UIBC 221

Iron 41

Iron Sat 16

Ferritin 67

My blood glucose response / levels following a meal seem totally normal.

I don't see blood sugar crash at all.

it doesn't look to me like your issues are caused by your WLS. Your labs look great.

I would look in a different direction , starting with a neurologist.
hope this helps.
