Anemia?: These appearances of your red blood cells are consistent with iron deficiciency anema. However, these reports are less important than the numbers: RBC count, hematocrit, hemoglobin, and blood iron measurements. If you have faiirly severe anemia, it could cause dizziness and maybe headache, but probably not low blood pressure. Discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

Iron deficiency results in small red blood cells, microcytosis means small cells. Hypochromia refers to less color being seen in the cells because the heme pigment in hemoglobin contains Iron.

Low Fe: Microcytic rbcs can be caused by a number of things but, by far, the most common cause is iron deficiency. This can be caused by a low dietary intake of iron, poor absorption of iron for some reason, or blood loss. In pre-menopausal, post-pubertal women, the most common cause is blood loss from monthly menstrual flow. Low iron intake exacerbates this. ...Read more
Fe supplements: If the microcytosis is due to low iron, then increased dietary intake is part of the answer. The most absorbed form of iron is in red meat (but that has its own health problems). Unfortunately, plant-based iron is not as well absorbed in humans as in meat sources. Thus, iron tablets may be necessary (very little is absorbed). If severe or anemic, a blood transfusion or IV iron may be necessary. ...Read more
My test came with mild microcytosis & mild neutropenia with relative lymphocytosis. the doctor didn't bother to bring it up , should i be worried ?
Need the numbers: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that.

My complete blood picture results note is rbcs show hypochromia, microcytosis and anisocytosis should I see a doctor or not?
Anemia of low iron?: Per your description, the most likely cause is iron deficiency anemia (hypochromia= less color/red than usual, microcytosis=smaller cells, anisocytosis=too many cells of different sizes). Being female of 39 (menstrual loss), i suspect this is most likely the diagnosis. Take some otc irons, avoid carbonated beverages (they bind up your irons), and consult doc for eval. Good luck. ...Read more
