As Salam Alikum Readers
I am feeling a bit sad and melancholy, I’ve been dealing with a few health issues and got the results of my blood work back and my ferritin levels are very low they are a ten and I had a follow up appointment with my doctor to see what it means and now I have to follow a specific diet / eating plan and am not allowed to fast this Ramadan doctors say it’s to dangerous with my iron reserves being so low. The diet / eating plan I’m on is very healthy lots of fresh leafy dark vegetables as they are high in iron beets and oranges as well a quinoa fish and oatmeal lots of red meat and eggs. Basically the doctor wants me to eat my iron and vitamins and to be honest sometimes it’s hard as I don’t feel hungry or have a appetite, I am also taking a multivitamin called alive women’s chewable and a liquid plant based iron supplement to see if this will help improve my iron stores .
I will be feeding hungry people to make up for my missed fasts , I was actually looking forward to fasting but now I have to make plans and adjust because ones health is important. I have noticed a improvement with my feet and legs since I started taking the vitamins and plant based iron supplement they don’t go numb as much .
