My husband was diagnosed with iron deficiency anemia. He drinks quite a bit, and his liver enzymes are slightly elevated (AST and ALT) but not horrendously, and his bilirubin is fine. The doctor just said to decrease his drinking but didn't tell him to stop so my husband thinks it isn't because of the alcohol. The doctor is more worried about his severe anemia but I am wondering if the root problem could be the drinking itself. This chart is his profile exactly which is Iron Deficiency, just wondering what causes this.
