 Anemia of chronic disease, also referred to as anemia of inflammatory response, is a common condition seen in chronic illness.(({{pubmed>​long:​7719246}})) Anemia is not due to iron deficiency, nor will it be helped by iron supplements. In fact, iron supplements are counterproductive because iron is "​crucial"​ to the survival and multiplication of pathogens.(({{pubmed>​long:​21414421}})) Anemia of chronic disease, also referred to as anemia of inflammatory response, is a common condition seen in chronic illness.(({{pubmed>​long:​7719246}})) Anemia is not due to iron deficiency, nor will it be helped by iron supplements.

 +When I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism (from Hashimoto'​s thyroiditis) I had iron-deficiency anaemia. ​ Doctor ordered me to take iron supplements for a month before he even gave me any thyroxine. BIG mistake. (Not his fault, but had we only known about the MP...) My iron levels came up, yes, I guess because I was ingesting enough to feed myself and all those iron-hungry bacteria! ​ The awful part was I felt more fatigued than ever before and my arthritic joints hurt more than ever before. I was depressed, in pain and had to give up my work as a massage therapist after 25 years.
 +
 +Once I started thyroxine my life turned around, as I got most of my energy back and my thinning hair started growing back - but my arthritis was as bad as ever.
 +
 +Fast forward 1 year - I found the MP and began phase one. Within days of starting mino I began to experience a metallic taste in my mouth. Could that metallic taste be ... metal? ​ Can't prove it, but my ferritin levels shot through the roof! You can read my posts on my thread: ​ https://​www.marshallprotocol.com/​forum35/​7698.html
 +
 +I reckon all those iron-sequestering CWD monsters were dying and giving up all the iron back into my bloodstream. After a couple of months, my ferritin levels came down to normal again and the metallic taste went away at the same time.
 +
 +So there you have it.
