    Low RBC,hgb,hct, TESTs included possible anemia causing dizzyness/fatigue?

    Hi, just found this forum. Went in for a blood work prior to a physical. test results came back with low result. not super low, just below normal. Doctor thought the results were wierd enough for an iron test. Which came back normal.

    Some history, I weigh 205ish and have for about 8 months now. Ride a bike 7-10 hrs a week. resting heartrate of 45-50. get dizzy now and then (like vertigo.) Often feel tired even after styaing off the bike for 2-3days.

    results.
    WBC'S AUTO 5.6 4.0 - 11.0 thou/mm3
    RBC, AUTO 4.52 4.7 - 6.1 mil/mm3
    HGB 13.9 14.0 - 18.0 g/dL
    HCT, AUTO 41.4 42 - 52 %
    MCV 91.6 80 - 94 fL
    MCH 30.8 27 - 35 pg
    MCHC 33.7 32 - 37 g/dL
    RDW, BLOOD 13.4 11.5 - 14.5 %
    PLATELETS, AUTOMATED COUNT 199 130 - 400 thou/mm3
    MPV 8.3 7.4 - 10.4
    FERRITIN 167.4 30 - 400 ng/mL
    IRON 125 59 - 158 mcg/dL
    TOTAL IRON BINDING CAPACITY 319 250 - 420

    It's actually not that low. Has your dr gave you an iron supplement? My dr said to get slow fe but my hemoglobin was a 10 last time and everything else was super low as well and I'm constantly tired too. Have you got your b12 checked or your vitamin levels like potasium and magnesium and so on that can cause one to be tired
