Neuropathy making a comeback

Hello @emcg, You mentioned that you have had iron deficiency for the past six years. Has your doctor expressed any concerns about diagnosing the cause of the iron deficiency or if it' serious? I have no medical training or background but it could be an indicator of another health issue. There is another discussion you may want to join and meet other members discussing anemia.

There is also a podcast you might find helpful on the topic – Women’s Wellness: Iron deficiency:

@hopeful33250 may have some thoughts or suggestions for you.

Hello @emcg, I'm glad that John, @johnbishop, invited me to this conversation. I have a friend who was anemic and was iron deficient. As it turned out, she had celiac disease and now avoids gluten and is doing quite well. I believe she was tested by doing an upper endoscopy.

Here is some information regarding anemia and celiac disease, https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/celiac-disease/symptoms-causes/syc-20352220

Have you been tested for celiac disease?
