... 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.

... 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...

Anemic, but WHY?
Nov 3, 2014
... Had my first infusion today. No complications except for a little queasiness. I had labs last Thursday and my HGB was 8.9; today it was 8. The hematologist strongly recommended a transfusion, but said the decision would be up to me since I'm right on the "borderline" for when he recommends transfusion. Does anyone have any experience with this? I wasn't given much detail... (5 replies)
... esperate for some knowledge and wisdom, seeing as how the ridiculous amount of doctors I've been to have been ZERO help. I had my son in 2011 and was told I was borderline anemic. He never mentioned taking a supplement and I felt fine so i completely forgot about it. ... (1 replies)
Anemic, but WHY?
Oct 30, 2014
... Frustrating visit today. I didn't even get to see the hematologist, only his nurse. Decided course of treatment is weekly iron infusions for a month along with weekly labs. Referrals to gastroenterologists, endocrinologists, etc. were put on hold until after I have my infusions. The reasoning was that the iron deficiency would skew any other workups. More labs done today,... (5 replies)

Possible anemia?
Oct 30, 2013
... 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. I would ask to get Vit B12 and folate levels done, as low levels can cause anemia, and some people have iron and B vitamin deficiencies that coexist and make them... (9 replies)
... I am not sure about that, but since elevated MPV can be related to anemia and blood loss, and you are borderline anemic with a recent hemmorrhage, I would guess that is the most likely reason. Especially since your platelet count is normal. ... (4 replies)
... I agree from these results that you could have some malabsorption. Your vit B12 level is low for the amount you are taking each day. Same with your Vit D. Your electrolytes are all borderline low, and iron/ferritin should be higher with 25mg iron a day. You can have gluten intolerance without having celiac disease, and there are other types of malabsorption. Have you... (2 replies)
