Please consume lot of liquid nourishment like thick soup, fruit pulp etc.Iron poisoning must show blood levels elevated. Other tests needed for lack of appetite. Good luck.

What bloods would be elevated
I just don't understand what is going on and can't get help from doctors
Would that iron have done me harm as I shouldn't have taken it
Expert:  DrVasavada replied 4 days ago.

Serum iron level will rise with acute poisoning. Usually constipation is a side effect with common iron salts. One may take laxative like lectulose and see. Plain B complex syrup may be substituted.
