Merrimac is right on target. However, don't confuse "profound iron deficiency" with "profound iron deficiency anemia." You can be severely deficient in iron without being anemic. One usually leads to the other but each relates to different blood values. Profound iron deficiency generally refers to iron storage leves (or ferritin) below 10. Merrimac nailed the values for profound anemia. I'm always severely irn deficient BUT I'm not always anemic. I've been under treatment and with care can usually keep my blood counts in the normal range.
