Show #345 – Steph Lowe On Iron – Too High, Too Low, Investigations, Supplementation and Nutrition

About this show:

Got iron issues? Tired all the time and think you might? Been told your iron’s ‘fine’ or ‘normal’ but you’re still wondering what’s up? Maybe you’re worried about familial hemochromatosis. 

Whatever it is as it relates to iron, that’s what we’re tackling on the show this week. In today’s show with Steph Lowe, we look at:

  • True low iron vs hidden root causes affecting iron and its transportation in the body
  • Supplementation and infusions often recommended and why they might not ‘stick’ in their effects on iron levels if your blood tests came back with ‘low iron’. 
  • What to test for iron – and it’s not just iron! 
  • The timing of testing both in terms of the time of day and of the cycle, for the most accurate results. 
  • Nutrition and cofactor nutrients to support healthy iron levels. 
  • Different minerals and how they impact iron levels and transportation of iron in the body. 
  • Iron pre/post menopause
  • Hemochromatosis and ways to not have this negatively impact you
  • When iron really is ‘fine’ – best lifestyle factors that encourage healthy iron.

Enjoy the difference!
