Nov 23, 2008

Some docs don't think to run this test. It happened to my friend. Always get a copy of your labs and compile a notebook to reference.

... If you have a high RDW and have been diagnosed with anemia I am sure it's due to the anemia. With only seeing the RDW value I can' say for sure but I'm guessing so. Having a high RDW combined with other things is most likely how the Dr. determined it was anemia. ... (2 replies)
... Wow - I think I've found my twin.
