I have been diagnosed with a condition called Mytocitic Anemia. It means I not only don't have a very high level of red blood cells, the ones I have are very small and even at a normal level cannot properly transport oxygen. So I would need at least 2-3x more red blood cells then the "normal" person to properly transport oxygen. Combined with this I also have a disorder that prevents the intestines to properly absorb b-12. So once a deficiency starts to surface it can become critical very quickly unless I literally flood my body with b-12 so that enough of it can get absorbed. I have already had the blood work done and I am reaching critically low levels of b-12. So, I now need to find ways to inundate my body with foods containing iron, vit. C, and b-12. Anyone have any good suggestions to get the ball rolling? What would you do to get started to reverse this condition?
