Actually, my hemoglobin dropping is due to the diet. It was extemely high a year ago - I was diagnosed with glucose intolerance, which is the stage before getting Stage II Diabetes. I was pretty panicked there for a while! Fortunately for me, the diet recommended for diabetics was very similar to the ER4YBT guidelines for type As. And they did tell me to watch my irons, but I really like spinach so I don't think it will be a problem. The 5.6 is well within what is considered the normal range for everyone's hemoglobin.
Isn't it weird how some of the things we do are sooo contrary to what most doctors and dieticiens tell you to do? I don't think I will EVER be able to talk to my doctor about the diet - I just briefly mentioned that I had given up red meat and alcohol, and had started to use olive oil, and she started lecturing me on the dangers of olive oil (high fat, high calories) and how I shouldn't just cut things out of my diet :) Just proves that NO ONE knows everything, because I feel 200% better than I did a year ago, and that is the occaisional cheat.
I envy you the milk and eggs! And I am so glad this works for you too
