    Default Phew!

    Got a call from my Dr. that I passed the glucose test I did on Saturday. Phew!!!! I was worried about that.

    But my hemoglobin is low. I am going to have to take 300 mg of iron pills twice a day. Never had to do this before, but maybe it will help with the dizziness and exhaustion I have had lately.

    Woohoo for passing. I wish they'd call me to say either way but they only call if I fail. Bummer about the iron supplements but sounds pretty doable.

    She mentioned on the phone that constipation is an issue with the pills. Good thing I bought a big bottle of senna tablets last month when I was constipated! Looks like I will be on those fairly regularly too.

    In the past I always felt much better after taking iron supplements. I didn't even have trouble with constipation, but I know a lot of people do. Yay for passing the glucose test!

    I've also heard Floradix is good without causing the constipation.

    Glad you passed, that's always a relief! Hope the iron helps you get some energy without too many unlovely side effects
