Gastritis, Low Vit D, B12 and anemia
I have been having "gastris" symptoms for a few years now, as well as IBS. I had my gallbladder out, due to the fact it was nonfunctioning, in the hopes it would clear up my nausea. It did not. Then I was diagnosed with gastritis.
I am a vegetarian, and am trying to increase my consumption of greens and vegetables. It seems whatever I eat negatively affects the gastritis or the IBS. I am low in Vit D, and B12 and slightly anemic. I can't help thinking my digestive issues are causing these deficiencies. I was taking a slow release iron supplement, but now it is causing sever nausea and even stomach pain. The pain in my stomach subsided only to go in the upper right side of my back with every breath I take.
Eating foods like bread and rice cause me to binge out of control, so I am trying to go higher in vegetables and fiber rich foods. It can often agravate either the IBS or the gastritis. I am starting slow this time and increasing little by little. My question is are my digetive problems the cause of the low vitamin levels, and what can I do if I can't take iron supplements? The pain this morning was pretty intense when it moved to my back, and I am wondering if it is related to my lack of gallbladder. Did the iron pill get stuck somewhere in my digestive track or what?
