Please help. Im not sure what to believe!
I got my blood tests results back and my doctor tells me that i am low in iron and need to take suppliments. Now i obviously dont know how to read these reports, however i do have them here. What does this look like to you:
Iron 16 ( 11 - 29 ) uml/L
Transferrin 2.71 ( 2.00 - 3.80 ) g/L
Iron B Cap. 61 ( 1 - 75 ) uml/L
Transfer. S. 26 ( 25 - 55 ) %
Ferritin 22 ( 20 - 291 ) ug/L
Thats exactly how its written. My doc tells me that i am low in iron, but dont want to take iron pills if i dont need to.
Also please note that i am Thalassemic minor which means i have anemia minor.
If the above test means anything at all to someone, please let me know.
