I'm not sure much about why that test is measured that way for you, but thought i'd share my story bc it's a bit similar to yours. Just found out I'm severely anemic, and I too have been donating blood since highschool (about 6 years) I just gave blood about 3-4months ago and they did that same test and i passed apparently(and I've never once failed it), I don't have much trust in them anymore bc i just had a blood test done and my iron saturation is 4 along with my ferritin(protein that stores your iron), which is really low! There's no way that depleted so much in just the 3 months that i last gave blood, so they should've sent me away. Exhaustion is actually a symptom of low iron, if you've been feeling really exhausted lately or ever feel light headed I would go for a blood test. I actually went to the doc for something completely different and found out i was extremely anemic. Better safe than sorry! Hope i helped a little!
