How Can I Not Be Anemic And Have Low Iron Saturation Levels
Matter of time: Low iron saturations could indicate the beginning of iron deficiency.

If you have blood loss, either monthly or from illness, I hope the source is discovered -- it could be ulcer, cancer, hookworm, etc. If you tolerate oral iron poorly, please consider an injectable form.

Rbc-3.37L, hemoglobin-8.9L, hematocrit-27.8L, platelet-643H, iron-11L, iron saturation-3%L. What does it mean? Anemia? Will I need iron transfusion?
Not necessarily: Try taking an oral iron supplement with multivitamins. Take the iron pills with meals. If constipation happens to be an issue, take a fiber laxative like Metamucil. With respect to diet - 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, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
