Default Deficient in Iron

I just got tested and I have a low iron count. I want to be able to not have to take iron pills for the rest of my life. I do know that liver is high in iron. And clams as well. what are some other high iron foods for me to include in my diet.

It takes about 3 months for the body to replenish iron, according to a doctor; so, you may only need a short course of meds to bring the iron count back up.

In addition to what 5kg said, black strap molasses (the real stuff, not the pussy Wal-Mart knockoffs) is pretty high in iron: 4.5mg per tbsp.

I'm no doctor, but you might want to find out why you have a low iron count. From what I understand, internal bleeding (colon polops) can cause it. Might be better to find the cause and fix it, rather than trying to raise it. Giving blood can lower your iron too.

That seems odd that giving blood can raise your iron count. How does it do this?
