    Anemia and iron deficiency

    Sorry, if I'm posting in the wrong area I just signed up today. I am 28 years old and have been extremely tired and weak. I have always had lower levels of hemoglobin. It's gotten very bad in the last year. I just had blood taken on Monday and I got some of my results online through a portal my insurance uses. I have had a call from the doctor but I didn't know if anyone had these type of numbers and we're just put on iron pills? I don't know how low these are. I've tried iron pills in bad but it's a slow process and I feel I can never catch up with monthly blood loss.

    Numbers are : ( are these normal?) I've tried google by there are so many different lows and highs that are normal. Thanks for any insight!
