... I had my yearly physical and all blood work was normal, as usual. WBC 4.7, RBC 4.48, Hgb 13.4, Hct 40.3. However, the doc thought my Ferritin was low at 31 so she put me on iron supplements. ... (1 replies)
... My blood tests over the past 3 years have shown low-to-borderline RBC (4 - 4.2), normal MCV (93-96), and borderline-to-high MCH (32-33). Is there a kind of anemia that could cause this? My latest blood tests however show this: July 9th 2012: (pre-surgery) RBC - 4.20 (normal: 4.2-5.2) NORMAL MCH - 33 (normal: 27-31) HIGH MCV - 93.8 (normal: 82 - 100) NORMAL Ferritin... (3 replies)

... Any immune or inflamatory reaction can give a deceptively high ferretin reading, colf, flu, arthritis, etc, even if it was so mild that you werent aware you were ill. Given your history, supplementing with iron would seem wise, and indeed, it may be worth taking iron supplements every day until you cease mensturating (perhaps at a lower dose than initialy) Say 2 x 65mg...

Sounds like a good idea, and given your history, it would seem wise to keep taking iron at a lower dose for the rest of your life - you may not need a lot, even a daily Centrum might be enough, or a small dose of one of the iron supplements you already take, but some extra iron to stop you slipping back into iron deficiency (3 replies)
... Thanks, jonnstar. I had finished taking antibiotics for a tooth abscess just 2 weeks prior to this lab test. So I guess that explains the unrealistic (for me) ferritin level! In the past I have had luck with a combination of Floradix (liquid iron) 60mg/day coupled with Ultimate Iron (with heme/liver fractions) 50mg/day. I still have some in the fridge and cupboard,...
