hannahhannah57--I WAS like you too I ~always~ went to work. I have been unable to work in the last year. I had a bad reaction to iron supplements and had enteritis for 3 months and that took all that I had left out of me. Then the next struggle was I couldn't keep my blood counts from dropping, hence never resolved the anemia for most of the year.

Your serum iron is the circulating iron in the blood. The Ferritin is the stored iron in the organs and bone marrow. I also had 8.5 Hgb with 2 Ferritin and I thought a MAC truck ran me over. I'm also 46 and that seems to make a difference the doctors tell me. They kept saying at your age......... I never realized I was getting older until all this. Having a thyroid problem doesn't help matters either.

I wish you the best luck with your Hematology appointment tomorrow. Keep us posted! FLFLOWERGIRL:)
