My blood test results came in and my iron storage levels are very high.  I looked that up on the internet and it is indicated in times of acute malnourishment.

Well, I am 89 pounds and that would explain it.  My doctor said that I am very inflamed but the test showed negative for H. Pylori bacteria as the cause.  We are still waiting for the specialist to return her call to get an appointment made.

Any ideas on how to put the weight on while inflamed?  I cannot do ghee or oil now.  Maybe a little flax oil.  I can tolerate almonds and walnuts in small amounts if well chewed.

This is a nightmare.  I am 5 ft 1in

Oh yes, I am told to stay off all herbal medications which would include NAP products until the diagnosis can be made.

Anything you can eat that does not bother you? How do you react to ginger?

eat more brown rice, oatmeal and manna and spelt bread every day....this is how B's and O's gain weight is by eating more grains and starches...the phytates in these grains can potentially decrease your iron levels

eat lots of leafy green vegetables as the oxlylates in them can lower iron stores

Calcium can also decrease iron...so eat your mozzarella

how about regular organic butter and agave syrup as a condiment?

go very easy on foods that are high in vitamin C (especially citrus) as these contribute to iron absorption.

Bloodletting is the only medical treatment for excess iron

Iron cookware should not be used

I think donating blood will help to decrease your iron stores temporarily until you find out what is causing your high levels.

Have they run the CRP test for inflammation to see what your levels are there?
Also how about the SED rate test?
This is the best article I've found yet, I think, so I'm listing it at the top. Seems that giving blood is the way to go. They address how often and what your levels should drop to.

This is a very timely article,  luanaflacco, suggests the same thing girly suggested. Giving blood. It explains alot of stuff. Will look for some more info for you.

this is the whole article:

I noticed it specifies when tests should be done and what should be eliminated prior to tests for best accuracy.

Thanks Mike.  I will try the grains.  I started with oatmeal for breakfast and rice for lunch with 2 rice cakes with almond butter for a snack.  My lunch consisted of pureed carrots with cauliflower, brown rice and steamed cod.

I am recording what I am eating to see that I get enough.  Canada's Food Guide says 6-7 servings a day in the grain group and I am only doing two at most so I will increase to see how my body reacts.  I need to stay away from gluten containing grains though.  Oatmeal doesn't bother me so maybe whole spelt would be o.k. too.  It may be just the flour products that really bother me.

As for the mozzarella, I will have to get some and try it.  I have feta cheese in the fridge.  I never know what is going to flare up my stomach so it's always a risk.

I will stay away from butter for now until I ask the specialist about it.  Also I do have maple syrup but not the other kind.  I can tolerate a little maple syrup due to my blood sugar sensitivities.

Lloyd,

Ginger is not agreeing with me at this time.  It really flares my stomach because it's a strong spice.  It never did before but I was never this inflamed before.
