I also have PCV and my Dr. said that food intake didn't matter but to stay away from taking iron supplements and vitamins with extra iron.
If you hear differently please post for the rest of us.
Best of luck to you and I wish you the best of health.
I have been battling with PCV for over 11 years. My Doctor told me to avoid foods rich in iron, (like spinach), avoid all vitamins that contain Iron, and stay away from Iron fortified foods. I was also told to lower my sodium (salt) intake. I no longer add salt to my food, except for perhaps a small amount in cooking. I try to buy foods low-salt or unsalted. Since I am also on a water pill, the low salt diet helps with that as well.
I hope I have helped. If anyone hears differently, please post it for the rest of us.
Wishing good health to all... ♥
