... Just saw a study. Frequent donations will have higher probability of developing anemia and iron deficiency (9.5% of males, and 26.7% of females). It quoted another study: 28% of male donors who donated 5 to 10 times in previous 3 years have iron deficiency. I donated 20 times in the last 3 years. It also says 25% of the people who donated >50 times have incidence... (2 replies)
... What is your husband's white blood cell count? Calcium level? Does he have any bone pain? Swollen lymph nodes? There are 3 ways you can become anemic -- by losing blood, by not properly producing blood, or if something is destroying the blood. If your husband isn't losing blood, that means it's one of the later 2. If he was tested for serum iron, he was probably also... (10 replies)
... be wrong in this case especially with the amount you are running and the little red meat you are eating. Anemia is very common in runners, and not very common in males so in my personal opinion it is really the only thing that makes sense which is why I'm kinda dumbfounded that your Dr's would think it's not caused by running. ...

... Usually males have enough iron in their blood to sustain them for a lifetime. It is rarer in males and more likely in females. Having said that, it could be still possible! It sounds to me like you are a young man as well, still in school? ... (1 replies)
Severe anemia
Dec 20, 2012
... Anemia is just a symptom of a larger issue, and with males where there is no heavy bleeding monthly anemia is more rare. Your Dr. probably wants to check and make sure you don't have ulcers etc. Maybe some more blood draws, scopes to check for internal bleeding, etc. ... (1 replies)
... you may be taking to much iron. What does your doctor say? I would think your doctor would lower your iron. You can get to much iron and it will cause your problems with your liver, heart, pancreas, skin, joints, and overies for woman, and testes for males, so if I were you I would ask my doctor to lower the iron I was taking. or at least find out why he hasn't done...

... You might want to get checked for an enzyme deficiency called G6PD deficiency. They used to think it only occurred in males, but newer studies and DNA testing have shown that it's possible for females to also be affected and not just carriers. Most people with G6PD deficiency never know they have it unless they are exposed to foods, chemicals or medications that can cause... (1 replies)
... I don't know. Iron supplements are not created equal some supplements are better than others for the GI tract. It sounds like you are on a good one. You never take iron supplements (especially males) unless they are prescribed by a doctor. They would tell you how much to take for your own need. You should not take the pills all at once, you would absorb much more if they... (1 replies)

... I have not heard of the drug but pharmaceuticals come out very frequently. Yes, people can get anemia and not notice the symptoms as they can come on very slowly and can be mistaken for normal wear and tear. ... (3 replies)
... Males are less likely to get anemia then females because they don't have a lot of bleeding over time. So it's something that you may want to get checked out. What is causing your anemia? ... (1 replies)

... Hi ladies, well i'm the 3rd 'old time' poster who has had a set back so i guess we now have our trifecta :) I just began a new thread on my new results and the only known cause which lead to my ferretin bombing. My ferretin had reach a high of 78 and by my next blood test (approx 6 -7 wks) it bombed to 50. I was taking Ferro-Grad C which is a slow release supplement with... (8 replies)
... for them. I also know that I read the ferritin increases depending on how badly the body needs or uses it up. I wonder if ours isn't just slow due to not being anemia and not much blood loss. Maybe it's just going to be slow for us. ... (21 replies)

... I can't stress enough how important it is to talk to your doctor about test results. So many people just smile and nod as though they understand, and then panic after the fact because they don't understand what if anything is wrong with them. Never be afraid to talk to your doctor about what they tell you and always speak up to tell them that you don't understand everything... (3 replies)
