[QUOTE=tiredofissues;5458247]Iron serum is 35
iron saturation is 8. Ferritin is 14. What does this mean? Waiting on the current hemoglobin number. I knw I have anemia but the iron serum and saturation numbers have dropped since last blood check in December. Any insight please.[/QUOTE]

I don't really know what those numbers are but my iron last check was 50 and very well within normal. You should ask your doctor what they mean or google it. Was this test done since you started taking iron? AFter you have been on iron awhile it should start heading to normal unless you're losing blood in some way. Or, you may not be taking enough iron. If you are taking a vitamin pill with iron in it, you are likely not getting enough for your condition. Did you doctor not give you any guidance at all?
