    Yesterday, my nephrologist informed me that my iron levels were dropping again. So, I’ll be starting iron infusions soon. Thankfully they do the two-series one, not the four-series.

    I’m grateful that my medical team is on top of things. Last week my PCP said it was low right before Christmas, but we would redo labs after the holidays. I did last week, and they continued to drop.

    I also was taking a Vitamin D supplement weekly. However, a few months ago, it was at toxic levels due to my CKD. So they discontinued it for now. I also do self-B12 injections each month and have been for several years.
