All of which is corrected with iron IF this is due to a straight forward simple (IDA) iron deficiency anemia. FLFLOWERGIRL:) (10 replies)

... 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. ... (10 replies)
... Both doctors are saying what is correct. The ferritin level is ok. It is stored iron. That means you have an adequate supply and you really don't want to mess with that. When the stores get high that is another disease you do not want. The Red Blood Cell count is by itself no indicator of anemia. The Hemaglobin is the official designator of how much functional iron you have... (1 replies)
... rritin, until I had a procedure to stop blood loss. It was the same problem, instead of Iron Deficiency Anemia, it became Iron Resistant Deficiency Anemia. The anemia is resolved but I am trying to get the ferritin past 41. They say that I am having malabsorption due to long term use of PPI's for GERD. ... (10 replies)
... From what I've read the very definition of anemia is "low red blood cells". Am I crazy or is my doc? ... (1 replies)
... Flowergirl is right - iron will only help if you are iron deficient. It is possible to be anemia and not iron deficient - I am chronically anemic, but I was only diagnosed when I went to see the doctor because the iron tablets were upsetting my stomach. You need to check if your ferritin levels are low as well as your haemoglobin, and if they are then you will need to take... (10 replies)
... Now that you are rid of the bacteria you should be fine. My mom had that happen 2 years ago with anemia and she has never had another problem with it. Best of luck to you too! ... (10 replies)
... Was it the same kind of anemia in both cases? ... (10 replies)
... She advised this is not normal and sent me for blood work and a pelvic ultrasound. I got a shock that I was seriously anemic. I was told I had a "6" when over 10 was normal. ... (3 replies)

... can completely sympathize as I share most of your symptoms, and I can tell you that there is hope! This post may be long, but I will do my best to help you based on my personal experience. ... (2 replies)
... my GI doctor ordered these and the WBC stuff seems to be on a different scale than my Campus Health Lab. Anemia was about the same but there was also some White Blood Cell stuff this time. ... (14 replies)
... it sounds like it must have been really frustrating - good luck and I hope that once your ferritin is ok again that that will be the end of your problems. I just got word back that my haemoglobin is now up to 11.6, just within normal range, just 4 weeks after the h. pylori being cured, and my iron and ferritin are slowly creeping up as well. so hopefully nothing more to...

... I asked my MD for a copy of my blood tests to take to the Rheumatologist this wek. I'd like to get an idea of how bad these are on the anemia scale. He told me that I am mildly anemic, but in searching the boards, some look a little more than that. ... (3 replies)
... Anyway, like you, I was not satisfied with just going off a CBC. One indicator on the CBC of iron deficiency anemia is the MCV value. This measures the size of your red blood cells. ... (4 replies)
... is low and truth be told, even if it was 12, that is on the low end of the scale and what's "normal" for one person can differ greatly from someone else because we all have different metabolic needs. ... (13 replies)
