the iron studies suggest iron defficiency,,the ferritin may be misleadingly elevated to within normal range by concurrant inflamatory disease

There are levels of anemia: mild, moderate, severe and profound. Your anemia level meets the mild criteria. Mild anemia can be treated by mild oral iron supplement or increase in red meat in diet. Moderate can be treated by iron supplement. Severe may take additional iron supplementation with B-12 and Folic acid supplements as well. Profound anemia sometimes has to be treated with IV infusions, or blood transfusions.(The treatment recommendations are particular to each case and these are only guidelines.)
