Two that are below the normal range are hemoglobin and red blood cell counts.
My staff recommended trying to boost my iron intake through my diet. So, I gave up drinking tea, because the tannins chelate with iron and ate a lot of pistachios, because I learned that they are high in iron and low in carbs (my tumor has influenced my pancreas so that I now have to take insulin 4 times a day, and it is still hard to control my glucose levels).
Has anyone found a way to effectively increase hemoglobin and red blood cell counts through foods or supplements?
