Newly Anemic
Feb 21, 2011
Hi! I have been recently diagnosed with anemia. The good news is that I know this condition is related to massive blood loss due to female issues. The bad news is that I landed in the hospital last week and needed a blood transfusion. I ended up getting two units of blood and an IV of iron. Before the transfusion my hemoglobin was a 6.4 and my hematocrit was a 24. After the transfusion, it was a 8 and 26. My doctor just called and said that my ferritin level was a 2! He asked if I thought I needed more blood! What does this mean? Is this level dangerous?
