Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

I would stop the galfer iron supplements

Dr. David :

most likely you don't have iron overdose from just 11 days

Dr. David :

but you should see your doctor and get your iron levels checked and your hemoglobin and red blood cell levels checked

Dr. David :

to see if you are really anemic or not.

Dr. David :

so don't stress about over overload.

Dr. David :

do you have a doctor you can see who can check your blood?
