    Iron level question.

    Hi all...can someone tell me how bad my iron is. I was told my iron is at 0.15 and my hemoglobin is at 122. I cant find anything on the internet that relates to these numbers. Also how long do supplements take to work. Thanks..ps...loosing too much blood due to heavy periods.planning to get thst fixed soon...but feeling awfully tired.

    Re: Iron level question.

    Hello Nina,

    Do you have a copy of your results to see the reference ranges? Different pathologists use different ranges so I'm unsure what I'm looking at. I know my last ones, ferritin was 4 and they were amazed I was upright and walking.... I ended up having an iron infusion and it's pulled my levels up dramatically - to 144. So in saying this, I am assuming yours is extremely low and I would consider asking about an infusion (I'm a little shocked they haven't offered it if your levels are so drastically low).

    All the best!

    Hi ...thanks for the reply. I do not have the sheet but was told my iron was 0.15 and normal is 0.20 to 0.50 but can' t find reference to these numbers on the internet. Also i was told 122 was a low normal hemoglobin. Not quite anemic but heading there.
