... Just saw a study. Frequent donations will have higher probability of developing anemia and iron deficiency (9.5% of males, and 26.7% of females). It quoted another study: 28% of male donors who donated 5 to 10 times in previous 3 years have iron deficiency. I donated 20 times in the last 3 years. It also says 25% of the people who donated >50 times have incidence... (2 replies)
... For a healthy adult with no underlying conditions, there's little chance an urban rebounding class would affect serum ferritin. Female athletes are more susceptible to anemia because of menstruation, but a 1 hour gym class twice a week (i'm guessing?) is unlikely to make much difference. But if you want a number? I'm a male who developed iron deficiency anemia. I run over... (1 replies)

... was that ferritin or serum iron? what was your hemoglobin? anyway, just try different iron supplements until you find one that you can tolerate. how about ferrochel iron or sundown carbonyl iron? these are supposed to be very gentle on the stomach if that's your issue. 100-200mg daily. also, if you did find one that works well for you without side effects, 3 months...

... OK, it sounds like your doctors have ruled out a lot. If you don't have internal bleeding or bone marrow failure -- and it doesn't sound like you have either -- my guess is your doctor will focus on hemolytic anemia. Something may be destroying your red blood cells. But if you don't have any symptoms other than the ones you mentioned, I'd take that as a positive sign. ... (10 replies)
... If everything else is clear, the hematologist may not be able to give a diagnosis on the first visit. When I had my hematology appointment, she just reviewed my blood work and made an educated guess. Her preliminary diagnosis did turn out to be correct. With the blood cancers (lymphoma, leukemia, multiple myeloma) you typically see abnormal white cell counts. For instance,... (10 replies)
... What is your husband's white blood cell count? Calcium level? Does he have any bone pain? Swollen lymph nodes? There are 3 ways you can become anemic -- by losing blood, by not properly producing blood, or if something is destroying the blood. If your husband isn't losing blood, that means it's one of the later 2. If he was tested for serum iron, he was probably also... (10 replies)

Severe Anemia
Oct 17, 2007
... Hello, I have iron deficient anemia. In the last year and a half I've had at least 15 blood transfusions and maybe half that many iron infusions. They still don't know what's causing it. I've had all the scopes, CT scans and blood work. I've had something called double balloon entroscopy. The last word isn't correct, but I can't remember it right. I had it Aug. 1st. ... (5 replies)
Severe Anemia
Oct 16, 2007
... Well even though you don't "want" the bone marrow test done it would be the best thing to have because it sounds like they've ruled out everything else. Don't you want to know what's going on? You said that you're tired of getting transfusions each year so it seems as though getting the bone marrow test would pay off in the long run. Are you refusing to have it done or have... (5 replies)
