My anemia's from inability to absorb iron. So although I eat healthfully, am a marathon walker, and do strength training, I still get profoundly anemic. As a result, I've developed PCVs (cardiac arrhythmia) and have a coexistent reactive condition where my white count and platelet count shoot up. Ferritin was down to 3 a couple weeks ago, so I knew it was time for an IV iron dextran infusion. AND that it was time to stop menstruating, because I just can't make up for the blood loss and was having to have infusions every 5-6 months the past year. So I bit the bullet and had a ThermaChoice procedure (removal of the endometrial lining of the uterus). Hope this helps get back to needing infusions only every year or more ...
