... lynn82nj--Thanks for your post. I was curious about the type of chronic anemia that you had. I too would have chronic anemia if it weren't for my doc saying that I am married to iron supplements.

... Yes, my iron and iron binding capacity and ferritin were all great. From what I have read Drs. don't like patients at the "low end" of the B12 scale and that's where I am at 324. I guess they prefer you way higher. ... (11 replies)
