Hello All,
I hope someone can give me their opinion on this. I am 61 yrs. old, in good shape, not on any medications at all except 81 mg of aspirin. My latest CBC test came back showing 3.1 RBC and 3.0 WBC and an "abnormal" level of transferrin of 264 whatever that means. My ferritin level was 12.7...also low.
My internist has referred me to a hematologist whom he said will probably do a bone marrow aspiration. I asked if this was not overkill...why not just have me take iron? The doctor said they want to find out exactly what is causing the low counts. I still think this is overkill, does anyone else? I really do not want the biopsy, but of course will trust the judgment of the doctor. thanks for any help.
