Low rbc, low hgb, high mcv, normal iron & B12 levels.  What is the cause of anemia?

Go to see your md and discuss further your condition. ...Read more

What are the symptoms of low iron levels in men?

Why do you ask?: If a man feels tired or has diminished exercise tolerance, anemia is a consideration. It needs to be investigated by a physician. Self-treatment by taking iron will simply mask the cause of iron deficiency, which especially in a man is a bleeding ulcer or stomach cancer until proved otherwise.
