So..I have yet to get my iron checked....I hear iron pills tend to upset peoples stomachs....and I have a fear of throwing up. I have recently discovered you can get vitamins as trans-dermal cream. Does anyone know if there is iron supplement cream? *hopeful* Otherwise...eek! I dunno what to do =\

Cook in dedicated gluten free cast iron.
Develop a fondness for putting blackstrap molasses in or on a lot of things.

Easy iron sources.

Sorry, no transdermal iron--and don't try pulverizing the tablets and taking them sublingually. I tried that, and my teeth turned black! It took years for the teeth to turn gray and eventually turn a dingy cream color.

If you seriously cannot take oral iron, you can request intravenous iron infusions. Many of us who are iron deficient and can't absorb iron receive iron in that way.

Do any of you find that cast iron skillets help a lot? I think i saw something online about chewable vitamins made for this sort of thing?

I have always had a hard time taking supplaments - set off my acid stomach.

Then I had to...

Iron was a tough one. Honestly. I take Solgar gentle iron and even that made me queasy for a few weeks - then it passed. I never vomited....just felt gross.

So you can probably get through it. The nausea is usually temporary.
