Skn69, that’s interesting to read about your husband, but sadly i’m a pale skinned Brit from a Celtic background (both parents and ancestors from Scotland and Ireland)
Pouch2021 - Well the administration of the prednisolone was a year or more after the deficiency problem started so maybe that theory is out. With chronic kidney disease i’d assume i’d have other symptoms related to that?
I have screenshotted your replies and will be addressing them when i see my Haemotologist and surgeon, so thank you very much for that, you are clearly very well versed in this.
What i wanted to ask is - alot of J pouchers do have iron deficiency anemia (albeit not to the extent that i have it) as i’m part of the Facebook J Pouch group where there is plenty of people with the condition. Do you have any insights into why some / alot of Pouchers develop the condition? As i said earlier my surgeon kind of said “it can just happen and it tends to be absorbtion issues” without much more of an explanation.
