but is it the same for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Iron</span> rich foods?

Serum <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Iron</span> + UIBC = TIBC. Excerpt from Medline Plus: Total Iron binding capacity... "Lower-than-normal TIBC may mean: Cirrhosis Hemolytic anemia Hypoproteinemia Inflammation Liver disease Malnutrition Pernicious anemia Sickle cell anemia" Labs that are elevated with macrocytic (enlarged blood cells) anaemia are MCH, MCHC, MCV.

Went through a battery of tests but of course no one tested her thyroid. Told her she had horrible vertigo <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> left ear drum must be fractured. They ask her if she wants to "disconnect" the left ear drum. She says yes and basically pays to go deaf in the left ear. For about 2 weeks the ringing is gone, she cant hear anything.

I thought that maybe boiling the water created a poisoning reaction, because I was using <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Iron</span> pots with white keramics but scratched in several parts, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the water turned brownish when boiled.
