I had bloodwork done due to not being able to lose weight after having a trainer for a year and a 5 months (6 weeks post op from colectomy) and doing some intense cardio. Additionally, I am having undigested food and watery stool still. My trainer's concern was that I may not be processing my nutrients.
I got my bloodwork back yesterday that indicates I have iron deficient anemia. I was a 14 and the low end normal range was a 44. Also, my BUN was elevated but my creatinine levels were normal. I also had elevated liver enzymes (ALT and LDH). This would indicate that my body is not absorbing/processing nutrients especially proteins which is not helping me lose weight. Has anyone else experienced this problem? What can be done to change this? Will the Ferrious Sulfate help me if I am not absorbing nutrients (will my body absorb the iron supps?)
