Dr thinks I'm on verge of iron deficiency anemia. Ferritin is only low #.hemoglobin is fine. Platelet is 600. Is high platelet related to pre-anemia?
My Hb count is very high I.e.17.4 and RBC count is also 6.4 million but the iron count is low .i.e. 33. What are the possible causes?
History is key: If you've been like this all your life, this may be your normal value and need not be a concern. If you tend to turn blue or have poorer exercise tolerance than your peers, you may have a right-to-left shunt in heart or lungs that's been missed. You may have a minor Hgb or receptor mutation. I trust you're not on anabolic steroids. The Hgb is high-normal for a guy in my book. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Less than 30 ng/ml: The normal vitamin d level ranges from 30-80ng/ml (may vary somewhat in different lab). Thus, level less than 30 is considered deficient. I have tested many patients and have never seen anyone having above 65ng/ml--i gues because we generally don't get get enough sun exposure and/or not getting adequate intake from diet. Consult doc. Good luck... Ng/ml=nanogram/milliliter. ...Read more
