About a year later my diagnosis of iron deficiency, my mother took me to a gastroenterologist in a pediatric hospital for a second opinion, as well as other tests.
After all the symptoms and the 'Waiting, I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease, an inflammatory bowel disease. Iron deficiency was one of the many problems that turned out to be symptoms of Crohn's disease.
Once I was diAgnostated with Crohn's disease, I started appropriate treatment with different types of drugs. My iron levels started to return to normal and I started to thrive as a teenager.
