... Did they do further tests to be sure it is iron deficiency anemia. There are many types of anemia--most likely it is iron deficiency in her case. I think it is important to have the iron tests done (ferritin) just to see how bad off you really are. Taking pills is definitely a pain. I have to take a Synthroid every morning and it took me YEARS to get to a point where I... (2 replies)

... Hi! Back in November I took my daughter to the doctor because she tends to nap a lot and I was worried - she also has heavier periods - she's 16. Anyway, they suspected she was anemic, and the blood tests came back "borderline anemic" - we were told for her to take iron 2 times a day and come back in 2 months to get her blood work done to see where she was at with it - I...

Anemia???

... I am so stressed over the fact that I was diagnosed with borderline anemia about a year And a half ago. I had a colonoscopy to rule out that that was the cause of the anemia. Colonoscopy was ok. Mild diverticulosis. ... (5 replies)
... My 16-year old son has had constant lightheadedness, weakness, fatigue, and intermittent nausea for the last eight weeks. He had been a varsity wrestler who worked out three hours per day - now he can barely handle a couple of hours a day at school.

... etting a colonoscopy to be sure even though she is fairly sure the bleeding was related to hemorrhoids. She said it's quite possible this could be the cause of anemia since the iron level was borderline. Sooo. Now I'm scared to death. What are the chances this is colon cancer..I always think the worst! ... (90 replies)
... me i could take it if i wanted to but it was up to me until next labwork check. If the iron wasn't better, then she would make me take it daily. I guess it was borderline at that point. ... (90 replies)
... an take. I am afraid it's too much but I will trust she knows what she is talking about. I recheck bloodwork in a couple months. As far as iron, she said i am borderline and she said i could go ahead and start taking iron if i want to now or wait until next check up. ... (90 replies)
... That is very low normal. That is what makes me think ANEMIA! But what kind of anemia and what is causing my anemia? ... (0 replies)
... Ugh, I feel for you! Its so disheartening when they keep finding nothing...and especially when they do find something, like your possible low iron and tell you its not that. So you are back to square one! So sorry you are going though this! I am too! you are in good company! I got sick about 5 times last fall (probably bc I was iron deficient) and the last illness was strep... (14 replies)
... r reason for your fatigue. I would differ with your Dr on stopping the iron when your Hb reaches 12. It takes at least 3 months to restore iron stores beyond the anemia being corrected, and if you have an absorption issue, it will take even longer. ... (14 replies)
... st studies are only done on clinically anemic patients. There has been a study on the effects of iron supplementation on fatigued women with low ferritin without anemia and there was marked decrease in fatigue for these women after taking supplements. ... (7 replies)

... Yes, I think you are borderline anemic with iron deficiency, but I am thinking because your cell size and cell hemoglobin concentration is at upper limits of range that you may have another factor at work here.
