Hi all,

Been doing Paleo for a couple months. Yes, I cheated. Nevertheless, I ate grassfed beef bone broth almost daily, beef liver, beef heart, and other meat that was mostly grass fed. Here are my numbers:

19 - Iron % Saturation (low)

12 - Ferritan (low)

12.6 - Homocysteine (high)

12.5 - Hemoglobin (low)

36.8 - Hematocrit (high)

16.1 0 RDW (high)

Is this a sign of celiac? Is it a leaky gut? Why am I not absorbing the iron? Should I supplement with B6, B12, & Folate? What do you recommend? I'm obviously deficient, but I don't understand WHY! My biggest health challenge is my anxiety which I think is related to the above.

Thanks in advance for your input!
