Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
has she been tested for celiac disease?
has she had hemoglobin electrophoresis done to check for things like thalassemia?
Sorry about the late reply
I'm shocked no one has tested for celiac especially in someone with bowel issues
I have had patients with ZERO bowel symptoms and just iron deficiency anemia and they have celiac.
I bet that is her diagnosis. Get celiac antibodies done ASAP
Please don't forget a positive rating.
