Re: Is this anemia?
Sep 16, 2005
Sounds like they are testing you for possible pernicious anemia. This has to do with your body's inability to absorb/utilize b12 properly and can lead to anemia. The arrangement of the values on your CBC most likely led your dr in this direction. This can usually be easily treated. You may get injections of B12 to help. Sounds like you do have a lot going on. Many health issues (physical, mental, emotional) can lead to fatigue and feeling just plain awful. By all means ASK what your dr is testing for!!! It's your right to know AND understand. Sometimes you can call the office and ask to speak with a nurse. They are often more patient and will take the time to explain test results. I would think that if your dr is worried about more serious health issues he/she would have requested other tests. But again ASK!! Don't worry needlessly!!!!
