Hi, I was recently diagnosed with iron deficiency anemia. My iron serum is at 21, iron saturation at 4 and ferritin at 4. Is this extremely low and should I be worried? Also my B12 is 246 which is on the low side, does that go hand in hand? I've been having really bad luck with doctor's, the doctor that gave me this blood test told me to take 500mg of iron a day, which i've researched and it looks extremely high, I'm going to someone else to get a second opinion because I know that can't be right and now i don't trust anything she says. I used to donate blood a lot because I'm O- and they are always calling me, so i think that's what got me into this mess but I'm also going to see another specialist because i sometimes have blood in my stools. Please help me if you can, i don't know what is going on.
