She's 34, she's not been seen by anybody, she's very stubborn , she's on no med an no med conditions an shes had no tests
I understand that it is tough to get to a doctor and have routine blood tests done but I think she requires routine blood tests done to make sure she is not deficient in any nutrient because her diet seems very inadequate which can lead to iron deficiency among other nutrient deficiencies and can also cause low hemoglobin as well among other things.This session is open for any further questions that you may have.
