... GG-- I can't remember your numbers off hand, but I thought that your Hgb was around a 7 before. With that to compare with and your current labs, I think you are doing very well. You are responding to iron and this is the trick. It takes time to repair all those blood cells and to make new ones takes about 120 days. Your B-12 really needs to be addressed too, that is way...

... Hello, I am 38 years old. I have known that I was anemic for a long time. Back in 2011 I went through a period of heavy menstrual bleeding, along with a UTI that landed me in the hospital. I received 2 pints of blood, and was sent home with my iron at 11 and my hemoglobin at 9. I can't absorb iron pills due to weight loss surgery, and they cause severe stomach pain, along with...

... I just turned 18 and I had anemia for around less than a year. I'm currently studying and it's so stressful... I have so much to do but all I do is sleep because I feel extremely tired.

... Hi, I'm new to this board. I'd appreciate any feedback on my labs. These were done during a regular physical exam and my regular dr. said I was definitely anemic, but she never did do an iron panel. After thinking back on my symptoms, I had several..headaches, tinnitus, fatigue, rapid heartrate with exertion, and shortness of breath with exertion. Three weeks ago I was... (4 replies)
... I have been feeling very run down and exhausted. The doc that is treating me for my thyroid wanted me to see a hematologist for what he referred to as suboptimal ferritin levels. My thyroid numbers have been up and down over the years. My ferritin is always low. The hematologist was concerned about how bad I looked. She ordered a bone marrow biopsy and a whole lot of...

My Anemia Story
Sep 4, 2011
... For years, doctors have looked at my labs and said, "Eh, you're a bit anemic." Then my symptoms got worse. First it was the stamina dropping off- like my muscles didn't want to cooperate with me. Then it was the shortness of breath walking any distance over 50 ft. Then it was the muscle cramps- those were the worst. Always in my trunk, sometimes stretching around my back,... (2 replies)

... Well, I guess it's a good news story, they are still pretty screwed up but they seem to be trending upwards which I guess means the IM iron is working. I've had three injections (2ml each) and they are planning on doing it weekly for at least three months, so maybe this will finally fix things? Just thought I would post the new labs so that I could get some opinions. My... (2 replies)
... My post may not belong in this category. I was not sure where to place it. My question is regarding lab reports on blood chemistry. Some things are out of range. Can you interpret this?

... My hematologist had to send my blood work off for further study because he said my red blood cells are shaped abnormally and I may have inherited a blood disorder, but he didn't want to conclude anything without further evaluation.
