Missing information: I am sorry but this is not in any way the right or full set of labs to work up fatigue in an eighteen year old male. There is so much missing here that this is impossible to comment upon. Here on health tap we often have a hard time interpreting lab results because labs are only one piece of the story and are often reported to us missing the most vital of information. I am sorry. ...Read more
Oral iron: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, there seems to be a disconnect between serum iron and ferritin levels. If you are not anemic, continue taking iron supplement and repeat the test in 6-12 months. ...Read more

Oral iron: Sounds like borderline iron deficiency (without knowing the lab normal ranges). Most iron deficiency can be repleted with oral iron -- often a few to several months. And knowing the source of iron (blood) loss. In women it is usually menses, but not always. Replacing iron for a low (hypo) ferritin without anemia does not improve symptoms. Ref: http://www.

RBC Low 3.99 HCT Low 36.4 Iron: 41 TIBCC 459 FERR 6.4 - iron deficiet anemia but why isn't my hemoglobin low?
Your hemoglobin may be low normal, but your iron stores are still depleted and if you do not correct the deficiency you will become anemic, especially of you are losing more than usual amount of blood each month. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco or alcohol in any form.

Doc gave me 325mg of ferr. Sulfade for anemia. I'm 10/12normal but didn't take a pill. Is it normal to feel dizzy?
Doc gave me 325mg of ferr. Sulfade for 10/12 anemia. I didn't take one today so is feeling dizzy/woozy normal? Even tho 10 isn't far from normal 12?
Try more fluids toda:
Missing one dose will not contribute to dizziness--and the Hg of 10 is low, but if stable and not falling--will respond to the Iron therapy.
Many times the dizziness is just from fluid deprivation
Try drinking a little more fluids today.
If still having the problem then a repeat Hg at the MD office would be good ...Read more
Rbc:3.99 Hct:3.64 Iron:41 Tibcc:459 Ferr:6.4 all abnormal was told Iron deficient...but Hgb: 12.0 so its normal does this mean Aplastic Anemia?
Iron def: All your numbers suggest iron def. You should d/w your doc what lead to this. Often there are losses from the body along with poor iron intake. A good history would discern the cause. If untreated then Hb may start to drop. This is not aplastic anemia and am glad. AA is not easy to treat. ...Read more

Fair means what?: Do you mean honest? Do you mean treating people with fairness? Are you being unkind in some way and others are pointing out that unkindness? Are your expectations so high for yourself and others that no one, including yourself, can meet them and that's unfair? Have you asked others how you could be more fair (including to yourself again)? Talk to folks, better yet get counseling. ...Read more

If our current lives are stressful, lonely, or less fulfilling than we'd like, we might imagine that the previous times were better. We daydream about what used to be, rather than what is. However, focusing on the present allows us to make changes that lead to more joy. ...Read more

This is usually benign but needs a good evaluation. ...Read more
To make babies!: "why" questions are hard to answer in the natural sciences, as they imply there's a purpose or intent. Biology usually relies on evolution principles to answer "why" questions.

If you seek a neurological explanation (how not why), perhaps a neurologist can answer. ...Read more

When baby is hungry!: Babies who are otherwise healthy are pretty good self-regulators; they'll let you know when they need to eat and when they are full. Most babies will feed every 2 to 3 hours or so, but this is quite variable - and it changes over time. Some newborns seem to do well feeding every 4 to 5 hours and some seem to need fed every 1 to 2 hours. Discuss your routine with your pediatrician. ...Read more
