Re: Severe anemia
Dec 20, 2012
[QUOTE=sam1958;5106908]was recently told that i have severe anemia based on 8.0 which should be between 12 & 16, now 8.4 after 3 weeks of iron tablets, now he wants to do further testing what tests do i need?[/QUOTE]

Anemia is just a symptom of a larger issue, and with males where there is no heavy bleeding monthly anemia is more rare. Your Dr. probably wants to check and make sure you don't have ulcers etc. Maybe some more blood draws, scopes to check for internal bleeding, etc.

I wouldn't expect your numbers to just shoot right up. I have been taking iron for 8 months and I'm barely getting in the low end of normal range. Not everyone is the same. Your numbers will get better once the cause for the anemia is found and fixed!

Wishing you the best :) .
