I was diagnosed with anemia 3 years ago and I was able to increase my hematocrit score from about 32 to a normal range within 2 months. Recently, I've been having cravings (ice) and all the other symptions that go along with anemia and I went in for a blood test. Here are a couple of my scores. My hematocrit is: 30 and my hemoglobin is: 8.9. My doctor wants me to have a Colostomy and an Upper GI test. I told her I had no other symptions and I think she sensed I was scared and that I was able to increase the numbers in the past. She told me she would give me 6 months to raise my iron scores. I'm terrified of the colostomy test and what they may find but since I'm 45 and it is required in 5 years I decided to have one and I go in next week. I have recently started to eat more red meat and dark leafy veggies. My periods can sometimes be heavy and may contribute to the anemia. Has anyone had any similar experiences?
