I do love meat but red meat stays with you such a long time. Report
I eat lots of food rich in iron but my Dr says my iron levels are low. Funny he seems concerned but never recommended an iron supplement. Hmmmm. Report
Have taken prescribed supplements for 5 years and my iron levels are spot on. Listen to your docs. Report
I have a really hard time getting enough iron, although almost everything I eat contains iron, just not enough. I was feeling really good for a while, but that's gone away, now I'm always tired. I did get blood tests recently and my hemoglobin is low, but my doctor didn't seem concerned. Report
I think a blanket statement that a woman over 50 only needs as much iron as a male is misleading. I am 54 but not menopausal yet so I would think I need more iron than a male. Report
It should be noted that excess iron can be toxic, and even deadly, particularly for people with hemochromatosis - a prevalent genetic condition in which your body does not shed excess iron and stores it within your organs. So rather than assume you need iron, please ensure you are tested first to be on the safe side. Report
I have battled iron issues forever - particularly when pregnant. I am a 6-year vegetarian and caved to pressure to eat beef while pregnant. It made me feel terrible after staying away from it for so long, and I had guilt over eating an animal as well. I put my foot down, chose to get iron through non-animal sources thereafter, and I've been fine since. Meat, in my opinion, is the worst way to get nutrients. That is an animal's blood you know - there are more humane ways that won't make your digestive system feel horrible after. Report
