Not known to happen: Vitamin d deficiency is common. Many people are taking extra vit. D and drinking more nonfat milk to correct that problem. Blurred vision is also a common symptom, but is not related to vit. D (researchers are still studying vit.D).

Iron 27, TIBC is 437 , Transferin Saturation 6. Does this show Iron Defeciency Anemia? and a reason for some fatigue? should I be taking iron ?
Are you anemic?: You are anemic if and only if you hemoglobin is low, but iron deficiency can make you tired before anemia happens. These labs say "iron deficient", most likely. If this is from very heavy periods and/or non-supplementing vegetarianism, iron supplements are in order, but the cause needs to be found first -- even at your age, it's a bleeding ulcer or stomach cancer until proved otherwise. ...Read more

Anemia found on labs. Iron serum: 21 Iron Saturation: 4, Ferritin: 3. Very heavy periods, and hadn't been taking iron. Blood transfusion needed?
How do you FEEL?: I'm glad this was recognized in time. You'll need a transfusion only if you're seriously symptomatic and can't last long enough to have your stores rebuilt by supplements. Please comply. Your best source of iron is red meat. Iron in spinach is bound to an acid that makes it not absorbable and broccoli as a wonderful source of iron is a myth made up by vegetarians. Good luck and be discerning. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
