can i still exercise  is this serious?

Talk to your doctor: You are quite iron deficient but your hemoglobin/hematocrit are not critically low. You can probably exercise, though you may tire more easily. If you have heart disease or lung disease you should probably not exercise until this is corrected, but your doctor is the person who can tell you best whether exercise is safe for you or not. ...Read more

CBP, ESR, Serum Iron, TIBC and identified
RBC Morphology : Microcytic- Hypochromic smear seen, Anisocytosis-Poikilocytosis. what test covers etiology?

See your doctor: Hypochromic microcitic anemia is most likely due to iron deficiency, but if there is significant poikilocytosis other causes are possible. Your doc may want to send you to a hematologist if the etiology is unclear. Good luck. ...Read more

Hgb	 11.0, MCV 77.6, MCH 23.8, mchc 30.6, RDW 17.9, ferritin level 17.2, folate (folic acid) 5.03, iron serum 42, tibc 441, iron saturation 10. What does this mean?

Any symptoms?: Why did your doc order those tests? Are you feeling tired? Do you have really heavy periods? The hemoglobin is a little low, but not severely low. You are a little iron deficient. You may benefit from taking iron and a stool softener if you don't get enough in your diet. But talk to your doc who ordered the tests, they may have more info. ...Read more

Blood count result: Basically everything you mention is normal except the MCV of 68.7. Mcv is a measure of the size of your red cells, and 68.7 means they are smaller than normal. Low iron is a common reason, but your iron results are normal. Follow-up with your doctor to discuss, but one thing to consider would be to get tested for a possible haemoglobin defect such as thalassemia. ...Read more

What might cause hyperthyroid, high anti-centromere b antibodies, enlarged red blood cells and high iron saturation, normal serum iron, low TIBC/UIBC?

THIS IS A "LONGSHOT": but this set of symptoms (SYNDROME) sound like HASHIMOTO's THYROIDITIS and PERNICIOUS Macrocytic anemia also may be AUTO-IMMUNE!!! in nature ie: the body falsely detects NORMAL TISSUE as being "FOREIGN" and develops auto-antibodies against (in this case) your thyroid gland and your bone marrow) This is a guess....just a "thought"..hope it helps!

Iron: You are likely post-menopausal and are not losing iron through menstrual bleeding. If you have been taking iron supplements, it is time to stop. TIBC being high is not of pathological significance. ...Read more
