When I was a very young lad, during the war, I was very anaemic. My mother had to take me to Gartside Street hospital in Manchester once a week for an injection, I suppose it was iron. I got over it and have had no problem since. I wonder what causes it?

Eating the placenta is supposed to be helpful for new mothers - and presumably useful through mothers milk. Does not the body need something to help it uptake and 'stick' iron to the blood- Orange Juice and Cabbage come to mind.

If you have problems with the potential side effects of Iron supplements you can take Orange juice which can help to absorb the Iron.

Getting quite a few texts from NHSBT as it seems stocks are low, sad that I can't help at the moment.
Booked in again for January, I could go earlier but will wait until P is able to donate again so we can go together.

Unfortunately it may be later than Jan for me as I have to have another blood test to check my levels in January. NHSBT won't have me if I have had foreign needles in me. :sad:
