  1. Wow Maria, this article really drove it home! As someone who has benefited from your advice so many times, I can also see how important proper consultation and big picture is to get to the root of the problem. You’ve inspired me to do what I need to get healthier. Thank you.

  2. Thanks for this excellent article. What is the remedy fir low iron if you have leaky gut and gluten intolerance? Thanks!

    • Thx Rebecca. Resolving leaky gut is imperative and I use various individualised treatments for that as well as easily absorbed iron supplements.

  3. My daughter had her iron level checked and it was 17. The range is 35-140. She is 20 months old and is a very picky eater. She loves sugar. My question is low iron will it cause her to have low red cell count of 3.54 and the range is 3.70-5.30 and a hct of 32.8 range is 33.0-39.0? Her hemoglobin was normal. Her MCV was high as well.

    • Hi Hannah,
      Thanks for your question. This needs to be addressed through her diet and potentially supplementation. Feel free to book a free 15 min consult on my website to discuss. Thanks

  4. Hi Maria,

    “I regularly test people for MTHFR genetic polymorphism: those with this genetic characteristic cannot utilise and absorb folate (B9) and can have severe iron deficiency as a compounding factor”.

    Folate? Didn’t you mean to write ‘Folic Acid’?

    Regards,
    Marc
