Hi,
I am new to this board. Although I have been battling anemia for years. I think I am worse this time than I have been in the past.I can barely get out of bed. My husband is very unsupportive he says that I should just make myself get up and do what needs to be done. It is nice to find a place that understands what I am going through.
My ferritin is 3.2
Iron saturation is 6%
How bad are these levels?
My hemoglobin and hematocrit are normal.
My RBC level is actually high. How could this be if I am anemic.
I have had iron transfusions in the past and my PCP is sending me to a hematologist next week to see about him giving me an iron transfusion.
I understand what the ferritin is but I don't understand what the iron saturation level means.
Thank you,
Jennifer
