Celiac Disease Causing Iron, Other Deficiencies
Ted, I have been suffering from multiple vitamin and mineral deficiencies as a result of celiac disease. I can't get my iron up and it's ruining my life because I can't ever function. I have tried angstrom iron but it made me sick. I have been on iron pills taken with high doses of vitamin C for a year and my iron hasn't changed at all. I have been on a gluten free diet that consists of nothing but whole foods. I am living in a house where there is gluten everywhere.
Despite my best efforts of separating everything to avoid contamination, it's just not working. I have done everything. I do not have the money to move. My question is: Is there anything that I can take to prevent malabsorption from continuing until I am able to move? My two children have it also and are not growing properly as a result. My 8-yr-old is the size of a toddler. I am desperate to make us better and hoping you have some suggestions. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
