I am wondering what the parameters are for a dr deciding supplements, injections or infusions. Here are my numbers:

white blood count- normal
red blood count- normal
Hemoglobin- low at 8.9
Hematocrit- low at 28%
MCV- low at 66
MCH- low at 21
MCHC- low at 31 (barely low)
RDW- HIGH at 17%...meaning microcytosis, not leukemia or B12 deficiency
Platelet count- normal

Thyroid- normal

Vitamin D- also very low at 12.

Ferritin 3 LOW
Iron Saturation 3% LOW

** some other result was a 13..was getting the info from a nurse and not sure...said it should be atleast 40.

So...I have been on oral supplements for three weeks. Only 1 dose a day. I feel like crap of course. I want to feel better. Just wondering what dose I should really be looking at and when do they consider the injections or infusions?
