[QUOTE=bacbiect]I went to the OBG for a regular pap check up and she said "you are slighty anemic" and that my blood count...or was it iron count was at about 11 and the norm is 15. what does she mean. what do i do in this case? i have been feeling sleepy lately and disconnected throughout the day. is this the cause?
i am so confused, what advice do you have?[/QUOTE]She means that if you live in an area with a high altitude and your Hemoglobin is 11 that you would probably feel better if it were at 15.

At Sea level, say Florida or any of the coastal areas of the southern US. a Hemoglobin of 11 would not even be remarkable because the range of normal is considered to be 12 to 14 at sea level.
