Hi :

Just curious as to why you can't have "a lot of what has iron in it"? Has your protein intake, aka , meat been limited? Hgb of 104 isn't too bad unless you are really symptomatic. You on Aranesp or some other bone marrow stimulant?

Sometimes it's not about eating iron rich foods. Your kidneys produce a hormone that helps with red blood cells and when your kidney function decreases so does your number of red blood cells. My nephrologist has just started me on EPO injections. Argggghhh I have to give them to myself! This should help with my anemia. My ferritin levels are not that bad.
