For 57+ female is change in Hb 10.6 to 12.4 using 'Orofer XT' for 2+ months good enough improvement? Does it indicate any blood loss?

It is generally: Expected that with this degree of anemia, iron supplementation will result in a normal hemoglobin in 6-8 weeks so she seems to be on track. BUT, the most important question is whether the cause of the anemia was investigated. A 57 year old woman should not just be given iron supplements; sources of bleeding, especially in the GI tract, must be explored. Hopefully a full anemia work-up was done:) ...Read more
