Sister has had blood transfusion for anaemia, has itching.
My sister has just had a blood transfusion for anemia and has been taking iron tablets. They think problems in her gut are stopping her from absorbing iron naturally. However, I have read that itching can be caused both by a transfusion and taking iron tablets as an allergic reaction. Should she stop taking the tablets and are there any other ways of absorbing iron (considering that her gut might be stopping its natural absorption)
