    Hi I am in Barcelona, Spain. I was researching online and came across your very informative article. I would like to know if it is possible to test with you from abroad? or if you are affiliated with another clinic here? I am extremely distressed with ibs + anemia and the regular doctors don’t help at all. Any referral you could give would be much appreciated! Thank you.

    Thank you, this has been such a helpful & informative article. I sit here searching for answers and I think I may have found it! I have had Years of low ferritin, currently it’s at 7 and another iron infusion booked in for this Monday. I feel like I keep trying to treat the problem not fix it. Never has any of the doctors mentioned the possibility of stomach acid being a concern. Only to ensure I’m having vitamin C.
    Thank you!

    Hi Maria

    I found your article on iron deficiency and stomach acid really interesting! I am in a cycle of iron deficiency, my thyroid results sometimss go out of range and what I think is low stomach acid. I am having to have iron infusions about every 6 months as I cant tolerate iron tablets. Ive tried many different types. Have you had success in the past helping clients to permanently resolve these issues? I am keen to get out of this cycle!

    Regards
    Kate

    Hi there
    Just to clarify if someone has low stomach acid does this mean that the pH is acidic or basic? I’m assuming low acid means a higher pH?
