I hope I'm not posting this in the wrong forum, but apologies if so.

I am a 32 year old female with lifelong Hep C. I have always had heavy menses, but was recently found to have low Iron saturation (11%), but with normal Iron levels. I also have high Tansferrin (3.8 g/L) and high TIBC (84 umol/L). Is this simple anemia or something else?

I ask because a doctor on another forum suggested it could be anemia of chronic disease given my underlying Hep C.

Also, about 8 months ago I had a severe ferritin deficiency for which I supplements with feroglobin iron pills for months, and I got it back up to normal. So I am perplexed as to why I am suddenly anemic again.

I would like to know what kind of anemia this is likely to be so I know how to safely treat it (and also monitor it if it is going to become recurring).

The only symptoms that had me tested are sudden debilitating fatigue for the last two weeks and shortness of breath at times.

Any advice or input would be appreciated.
