    Question Just Found Out I Have Anemia... Help?

    ~* Hello! *~ I just found out I had anemia, they took my blood and said I was at 34%. What this means, I have no idea, but they said it was low and told me to take iron tablets. I forgot to ask them, but does this simple blood test differentiate between the anemias - how do they KNOW it is iron deficiency anemia? Could it be a different kind? I have been on the iron for 2 weeks now and when retested I was still at 34%. Thanks so much for any responses and I am so happy to be a part of this board, this is my first post!! Glad to meet you all! Kristin

    I know only a little about anemias but am sure that others on this board can offer you their personal perspectives. For now, here are some useful information links.

    Different anemias: [url="http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/000560.htm"]http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/000560.htm[/url]

    Lab tests online: [url="http://**************.org/understanding/conditions/anemia.html"]http://**************.org/understanding/conditions/anemia.html[/url]

    Something else you should keep in mind is that iron supplements should not be taken with some foods - discuss this with your pharmacist and read this article.

    Good luck,
    Jay
