Blood work numbers
Feb 6, 2012
So, I've been low on iron off and on for as long as I can remember. I get turned down at the blood donor clinic 8 out of 10 attempts, but my blood work from the lab usually says my hemoglobin is within normal range.
Last week my doctor decided to do more blood work, because I'm at that ripe old age of 40...

So here is how it came back:

WBC 5.1
RBC 4.44
Hemoglobin 128
Hematocrit 0.39
MCV 87
MCH 28.8
MCHC 330
Platelet Count 192

Biochemical Investigation of Anemias[/B]
Ferritin L 10 > 14 ug/L

Urine Chemistry
Hemoglobin - ATRACE

Pituitary Function
H 37.7 (range - 5.0 - 23.0 ug/L)

I have to go back to see the doctor on Wednesday, and want to be armed with questions... I've been sick for the past 3 days with bronchitis, and out of curiosity, I took my temperature, and was surprised to see that its only 95.4, which seems to be low, if normal range is around 98.6.

Advice of questions I should ask is much appreciated!
