Iron def anemia. You have iron deficiency anemia-from your blood work provided. You need iron supplement-but most importantly to find out why you have iron deficiency anemia. Bleeding/blood loss- , malabsorption of iron in the stomach, or poor nutrition status/not enough intake of iron from the food could be the cause. Go to see your pmd and have more eval. If needed, referral to a hematologist can be done by pmd.

Iron deficiency. You and your physician need to find the cause. It may be anything from heavy periods to non-supplementing vegetarianism to a bleeding gut ulcer or tumor to hookworm to a host of others. Good luck finding the real cause. You wil feel better when you are treated. Read more...

This looks good. I'm not sure what your question is here, but overall this information regarding your blood counts looks good. You don't look anemic, the platelets that clot your blood are in good levels, and your infection fighting WBC's are at a good level. Have a great evening! Read more...

Hemoglobin 13.4, Ferritin 10, Iron Saturation 9.0, Iron 40, MCH 24.8, MCHC 31.4, RDWCV 17.4. How can Hemoglobin be normal, and other levels so low?

It's early. Iron levels drop long before hemoglobin does. I'm glad you're interested in your health. Try to find out where you're losing iron (ulcer? stomach cancer? hookworm? colon cancer? 100s of other possibilities) or whether perhaps your diet is insufficient or you donate a lot of blood. Stay on top of this. Best wishes. Read more...

My iron is 25 (27-159), ferritin 71 (15-150), saturation 10% (15-55), hemoglobin 11.9 (11.1-15.9, hematocrit 37.5 (34-46.6), MCV 77 (79-97), MCH 24.5 (26.6-33), MCHC 31.7 (31.5-35.7) & platelets 371 (150-379). Should I be concerned about any of this?

Low iron levels. Your lab results fit the picture of iron deficiency, probably getting low enough to cause anemia in the near future. There are a ton of potential causes of this (diet, poor iron absorption, blood loss, and more), so it would be best to discuss these results with your primary healthcare provider. Read more...
