Just wondering if anyone else has experienced dark green coloured diarhhoea while on high strength iron supplements? I have been getting this a lot lately while also exhausted and having the usual gluten type abdominal symptoms. Am 33 weeks pregnant and have been on prescribed iron pills for a couple of weeks now.
I had expected to get constipated while on iron but read that it can cause diarrhoea as well as abdominal discomfort, and of course being exhausted is to be expected while pregnant and anaemic!
But as I have been eating out a lot lately I have a niggling doubt that I have instead been glutened and the iron is making the diarrhoea green instead of the tell tale yellow diarrhoea I usually get when glutened.
Anyone experienced this?
