Re: trying to understand all this
Hi, I don't know that much about it, but I was often anemic growing up, but I had heavy periods. However, after menopause, my iron was also 19. Dr didn't seem concerned. Told me to take iron. I did and it went up but very slowly. My girlfriend on the other hand was very anemic. Her dr ordered tests including a colonoscopy. It was normal. She took iron and her blood was tested again and it was normal. It scared her enough though to change her eating habits of her hubby bringing home fast food every night.
