What doctors never told me about my blood.
For almost 40 years, Diana has struggled with low iron. It wasn’t a problem when she was younger and before she had children but shortly after her second child was born, she felt drained. Doctors and blood tests found nothing wrong; she was only borderline anemic.
During hospital visits to give birth to three children and to remove her gallbladder, she found nuggets of wisdom that helped her live with anemia. It wasn’t until a friend suffered a life-threatening health issue with her blood, that Diana found the true source of her problem. Once identified, the battle began.
Fluid of Life is Diana’s journey to learn about anemia and how it affected her body. The book contains information on blood health every woman in mid-life needs. Diana shares the pieces of the puzzle that empowered her to regain control of her life, to disperse the fog and start living. These were key pieces not given during her many doctor visits.

Diana Tibert is NOT a doctor. She is NOT a nurse or medical practitioner of any type. She has no formal education or training in the medical field.
What she shares in this book is the wisdom she’s gained in her almost four decades of living with low blood, or as the doctors call it, anemia.
Anemia is defined as a deficiency of red blood cells or of hemoglobin in the blood. This may cause low energy levels, sleepiness, feeling tired, dizziness as well as more serious conditions.
Living with anemia made Diana a special case with her three pregnancies and one operation. Each hospital visit increased her understanding of red blood cell levels.
Please use this book as a springboard to seek answers to questions you might not know to ask. Take what you read here and do your own research online or at your library, and ask your doctor for more information on the topics discussed in this book. No one person knows all the answers. However, from talking to people who have knowledge about health and by reading books, magazine articles and online material, we can gain enough knowledge to live a healthy life.
Knowledge is power, and knowing about one of the most vital components that keeps us alive—blood—can help us recovery and provide a general over-all feeling of wellness. It might also prevent a major health crisis.
Some readers might say everything contained in this book can be found on the Internet. Perhaps it can, but it won’t be found in layman’s terms in one place, and it’s almost impossible to find answers to questions you don’t know to ask. If you are anemic, think you might be, or you are a woman between the ages of 30 and 50—with or without children, but particularly if you have had children—this information might provide some of the answers you seek. The book is short and to the point. There is no need to make it any longer than it needs to be.
