Re: Low iron
Dec 8, 2010
You should see your dr. right away. 6 is really low. If you can't have a blood transfusion you could have iron infusions by intravenous. I had to take ferritin tablets to bring my iron stores up in the bone marrow and take liquid iron to bring up my iron level. I guess you will see a Hematologist to find out why your levels are so low. They need to check for any bleeding whether through heavy menstrual periods or another bleed. Let the dr. know if you're having dark tarry stools. Hemoglobin brings oxygen to all parts of your body so if you're levels aren't high enough you're going to oxygen deprived and you will feel tired and dizzy. Where are you now? Are you at the hospital? What did the Dr. say? If you're symptomatic which it seems you are by the dizziness and headaches you should be going to the hospital. Best wishes and hope they find out what's going on and you get treated soon Sara
