#422

Pull the lead out


#423

Eat less red meat, reduced my intake of cereals.

This is my “up” week so I’m not too disheartened. Next week will tell a lot


#424

Guinness?

Reduced your Vitamin C intake?

You drinking tea after meals?


#425

Drink fuck all Guinness these days.

I drink a gallon of tea a day


#426

Good stuff, avoid those berrocca & vitamin C tablets, orange juice etc.


#427

Don’t sweat it @fran. You are going to get these anomalies every so often. In the end all the excess will be off your organs and the levels will fly down.


#428

I would not touch it with yours, mate


#429

You feeling any better anyway mate?


#430

I never really had any symptoms apart from the odd dose of gout, which is a cunt of a thing.

It was picked up when I went to the doctor about something else


#431

Didn’t even know that was a symptom.


#432

So @Fagan_ODowd informed me way back in this thread


#433

I’ve discovered that it’s not really gout. You get the same symptoms but it’s the beginning of the iron loading your joints that starts at the extremities and works its way back up your body.

734 :ronnyroar:


#435

That was very informative by the way @Fagan_ODowd. I remember going to the doctor years ago with it and the stupid cunt gave me some bullshit speil about fallen arches and told me to go off and fork out a load of money on orthotic insoles which I never bothered my hole doing


#436

The floodgates are open Fran. It’s game over for the ferritin


#437

'Hon the fuck @Fran - we’re all behind you here :ronnyroar:


#438

I’m quite apathetic if I must admit.


#439

You weren’t included in the ‘we’


#440

Try be more specific in future. For Fran.
