... I've had iron deficient anemia for years, I take 260mg of iron a day via vitamins. What I don't understand is how I could be anemic without my actual RBC being low? ... (0 replies)
... My Red blood cells were very small too with my anemia. This is normal. For supplements, the higher the dose of iron the less constipation. There are types of iron that are much, much easier to handle. I have found one that works for me after being very ill on Ferris Sulfate 3X daily. That just didn't work. You really have to keep trying until you find one that works for... (8 replies)

... Hi all: I saw the hematologist today and was diagnosed as having micro. anemia. My rdw is high and iron, iron sat., ferritin, and hgb is low with a high TIBC.

... onelove$life--Welcome to the boards!:wave: Sorry that you are so overwhelmed by all this. It can be a very disconcerting time that's for sure, I sympathize deeply with you.

... Yes!! You are looking good. I am very happy for you. Platelets are the clotting factor. They go high in the presence of iron deficiency. Your RBC morphology is marked as anisocytosis (slight) which means that the RBC's are of *un-equal size*. MCV 67 meant that the cells were much smaller. So you have (shape of cells) Few Oval, Mild Hypo, Mod Micro. This is... (2 replies)

... urrent one and based from my own experience with my Hematologist, I will give some suggestions.

I don't know that I would repeat the one that did that to... (8 replies)
... My goodness, how awful!! Was that a particular iron supplement that did this to you or did they all have this affect? (8 replies)
... My MCV is 58, have had enough of feeling this way and am pushing Dr to do more investigating. Have terrible side effects from iron supplements, nausea, palpitations and feeling like I just spent 24hrs on a carnival ride. Dr advised I double iron supplement, I did and immediately threw it up and dry retched and then vomited full blood, freaked me out and I went into shock, had... (8 replies)
... Okay, thanks. I looked at my old labs from 2 yrs ago when I think this began and I was 89.6 then and the range was 80.0-100.). I never knew you had to read your own labs back then. Guess it's a ~Life Lesson~. I have never heard of "normocytic" either. Interesting! FLFLOWERGIRL:) (8 replies)
