Hi, My mother is 58 year old and she has been a diabetic for the past 21 years and have become insulin dependant for the last 9 years.. Her recent blood test result had a low iron with Haemoglobin of 11.2. Our doctor advised her to take IV iron. We consulted another doctor for 2nd opinion and he advised it is no big deal and gave daily oral tablets for iron and weekly vitamin tablet. We tested iron again after a month and it has gone down to 10.1. The doctor who gave us 2nd opinion still says nothing to worry and asked us to continue to the oral tablets for 3 more months. Should we consider another opinion or is this fine?
