RE: [IP] Chronic Anemia



I too have anemia, that doesn't keep me down. Mine has been caused by
chronic renal failure due to long term D. Has your doctor discussed Procrit
/ Epogen for you. It does help, even though it is expensive. 10000 IU, is
$100, and is administered by SubQ injection (argh those syringes again).
