My baby is having a problem with his blood clotting too fast and his white and red blood cells are low what could this be caused from
Low serum iron, normal ferritin, red blood cells and hemocrit. Will 14mg iron a day raise my serum iron? It was only a little low.
Probably not: 14 mg is a very low dose because iron supplements tend to be poorly absorbed. It depends on which form of iron you use but authorities recommend 50-100 mg of elemental iron 3x/day to correct deficiencies. The best absorbed form is iron bis-glycinate but even for that form i advise 25 mg a day. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

This is classic picture of red blood cells under the microscopy when iron deficiency occurs. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Many answers: One would want the hemoglobin and hematocrit levels to more accurately answer your question. The MCV above is borderline low based on a usual normal range that starts about 80. Low iron levels are the most common cause for a low mcv. I would have the complete blood count repeated before being overly worried about the above listed values. ...Read more
