    CBC Numbers and road ahead

    Hi, hoping people will be willing to share their experiences. I have just received my labs and been asked to start a multi-vitamin and Ferrous gluconate. I have been tired and cold for a long time and my sister is Anemic and has taken several IV infusions over the years. She thought I should have a CBC and the numbers came back
    WBC 5.3 K/CUMM
    RBC 3.71 M/CUMM
    Hemoglobin 10.0 G/DL
    Hematocrit 30.5 %
    Platelet count 308 K/CUMM
    Ferritin <3.4 NG/ML (Is negative even possible?)

    Anyway, I take 200 mcg Levothroxine - this was 150 then 175 now 200 - over the last year.
    Just seeing a regular doctor - should I be seeing a specialist?

    Thanks in advance for your thoughts!

    Yes you are anemic. I just got m,y first IV infusion yesterday with ferritin of 3 and hemoglobin of 11.1.
    Talk to your doctor maybe that's an option for you. Are you having symptoms?
