Anemia and veganism

Hey guys! Just wanted to share something I thought you all may appreciate. I’ve been vegan for about 6 months now. Prior to the switch I had been a lifelong omnivore and struggled with severe anemia. Everyone I talked to before the switch warned me that going vegan would only make this issue worse and told me to reconsider. Last week I went in to get routine blood work expecting the same iron levels I always had, but my iron was actually perfect! For the first time in my life after years of supplements and fatigue, the one thing I was warned not to do ended up helping! I couldn’t believe it and it really makes me second guess everything else I have been told about deficiencies due to a vegan diet. Anyways I am thrilled and I have never felt better!
