My dr's office just called me back with some of my test results. All she said was that I need to increase my iron levels and she suggested I take Ferris Gluconate every other day for a week or so and then slowly increase to 4 pills a day. She also suggested that I contact my GYN since I have extremely heavy periods.

My dr told me last week that the levels were definately low enough to show the symptoms I've been having (exhaustion, headaches, feeling cold, shakiness, nausea, rapid heartbeat and feeling like I can't catch my breath). However, the dr today said my iron level wasn't really that low and I was "almost" anemic.

What do these mean?

Iron saturation level 14%
Ferratin 7
Hematocrit 32
