Facing An Anemic Problem

i am an 18 year old girl and have battled chronic anaemia for the past five years due to severe bleeding and bad eating habits which i wish i could change .i go through a lot in dealing with this migraines tiredness breathlessness palpitationleg [ains and pica to mention a few or else the list will go on and on coupled with PMS and eye problems it was the cause of my misunderstanding in my family because they could never understand it, i was branded lazy beaten, for me to stop my pica habit something i knew nothing about yet i didnt complain worst of it all blamed for what i went through and had to deal with it alone.this went a long way to hurt me and damage me physically and emotiomally there are times its better and there are times its worse but then each new day comes with its troubles.i sometimes ask myself why do i have to go through this pain where no one  really understand what i go through and appreciate how strong i have being and everything idid was in interest of somebody but rather condemn me when i cant get something done or even be by my side when i get to face those fearful moments in ER doctors and nurses jabbing you here and there ,the very thing i fear most and all those drugs you need to keep fit,it isnt that i aint willing to help myself by taking those med for 3 months or those routine check up and needles the gospel truth is i hate too much of those procedures at the same time i cant do it the natural way but i got to choose one so i take the meds all right bt jst cant keep on it long enough and the comment passed abt my condition hurt more than the disease itself but i am glad i diddnt let it over rule my life but it became a stepping stone for medical carrer i am pursuing ithough though tough bt i will make in other to help those with it.sounds depressing to think abt it bt then I AM A SURVIVOR YOUR VIEWS AND ADVICE OF HOW YOU DEAL WITH IT WILL BE WELCOME AND APPRECIATED

You are correct--anemia affects many body symptoms and causes many different symptoms. I am a doctor in Montana and frequently treat women with iron-deficiency anemia. One of the major problems I see repeatedly is that women with anemia are not recommended enough iron to adequately replenish them. The general recommendation is that someone with anemia should receive 2-3 mg elemental iron per kilogram body weight per day. This usually requires 90+ mg elemental iron daily. However, the problem is that most iron pills cause abdominal cramping and diarrhea at this amount. The only product I recommend for iron deficiency anemia is FerroSolve by Nutritional Biochemistry, Inc. (NBI, www.nbihealth.com). This product, formulated by physicians from Harvard, Cornell, MIT and Bastyr contains a proprietary amino acid chelated form of iron that's up to 75% absorbable and does not cause the abdominal complaints and constipation that other iron supplements (such as ferrous sulfate or ferrous gluconate) cause. You should consider taking FerroSolve as it's inexpensive and more effective than other forms of iron.
