I am 5 years post gastric bypass and have recently been diagnosed with iron deficiency anemia. My latest bloodwork showed a hemoglobin level of 9, low vit D, low B12, and elevated platelets, despite my taking my prescribed vitamins religiously and never missing the B12 shot I get every 3 months. I'm currently scheduled for a bunch of tests to determine why I'm losing iron, or maybe my body just isn't processing it. I have a history of bleeding marginal ulcers (an ulceration at the RNY connection site) so I'm having another endoscopy next week, and I'm putting my money on this as being the problem. I'll also be receiving my first (and hopefully last) iron infusion. If any of this sounds familiar to you, I'm willing to bet yours is iron-deficient anemia.
