Case Study: Clearing the gut helps with maintaining iron levels
posted: Nov. 17, 2021.
A 44 year old female presents to clinic as a Functional Medicine patient. She has been struggling with multiple symptoms for years. After a detailed history she was diagnosed and treated for SIBO.
During her routine lab testing it was found she was also iron deficient anemic. She has been dealing with this issue for years. She has tried multiple iron supplements and even transfusions and nothing has seemed to help.
After clearing out her gut and re-establishing her microbiome her body has been able to absorb the iron she has been taking and for the first time since she can remember she is no longer anemic!
