My doctor claims that I have "severe iron deficiency anemia," but the gastroenterologist he sent me to was not concerned. My doctor put me on iron supplements, but I am not having a transfusion or iron shots. Here are the "abnormal" numbers. Wondered how far out of the normal range / serious they are:
Ferritin -- 3
Hemoglobin -- 10.1
Hematocrit -- 0.30
MCV -- 76
MCH -- 25
RDW -- 16.1
Everything else is perfect. Also, not sure what the last three tests mean.
Any help would be AWESOME!
Many, MANY thanks!
