librarygirl2--How I would kill for a ferritin like yours. You say that you take iron almost everyday, how much do you take or is it just in your multivitamin? I still take 150mgs of iron daily because my ferritin is only 41 after 1 1/2 yrs. Do you know why your ferritin was a 53, 2 yrs ago and did you feel bad because of it?
When I was first complaining about heavy periods (3 years ago), my hgb was 13.3 with platelets at 439,000 H was marked out and dismissed by the doctor, I had no clue what it meant. When I was DX with anemia they were 462,000. Now that the anemia has resolved with a hgb of 14.4, platelets are 291,000, so yes, they went down.
I'm going for my Celiac blood testing tomorrow. I hope that I don't have that because I wouldn't know where to begin to change my diet once again. I changed it drastically due to the anemia.
Maybe an ultrasound of the internal organs may help. This is usually the first step. Then CT or MRI. Do you see a Hematologist? FLFLOWERGIRL
