Hi Liza2,

There are so many reasons for Anemia...I have Autoimmune Hemolytic anemia and its totally different that iron deficient...I thought the same thing...that it always involved iron, but it doesn't as I have found out, I think the first thing they will do is more blood work to find out why you hemoglobin is so low...mine is because for some reason my immune system got all whacked out and started to attacking itself...I developed antibodies that were attaching my red blood cells, when I was dx my hgb was at 4.2, and get this...its "idiopathic"..(reason unknown) that was the real bummer!!!

Try not to worry to much, it almost always gets better as soon as they figure out why its happening....Call your doc back on Monday and keep bugging them until they call you back...and don't stop they are used to it!

Let us know what happens ok....don't forget that so many of us care!
