Get straight amswer: The history you give suggests a need to sit down and have a frank talk with your physician and get the facts. Unless you're seriously restricting your diet, it's hard for a man to become iron deficient unless he also has blood loss in the got or elsewhere. A combination of anemia and neutropenia raises concern for myelodysplasia or something similar, it's your right to know the score here.
