In late January my urea nitrogen (BUN) was 11. Between
7-25 mg/DL is normal so it was not noted. By early
March it had gone down to 6.
Within two months, my iron level dropped 30%, and my iron saturation dropped by more than 15%, so SOMETHING is going on somewhere. My doctor wanted me to see a gastro-intestinologist and get 'scoped', but I do not have medical coverage or the money to pay for these tests, so he kindly put me on Aciphex for three weeks...
