[QUOTE=peipaws;2782884]I'm not sure what type it is. At his last visit they said he was "borderline". This is the first test of any kind, over this last yr, that has not been "normal". He has been sick for some time and NOTHING ever showed up in bloodwork until now. How long does it take to become anemiac?[/QUOTE]

It's hard to say how long. In the case of iron deficiency, for example, a woman can lose too much blood through her period each month. It could take YEARS for her iron to deplete and then finally she would be anemic.

In a male who is losing blood from somewhere, it could happen very quickly. If it is an autoimmune disorder where his body might be destroying his own blood cells, it might take a few months.
