I have no idea what happened to my last post. I can see part of it when I search on it, but it's not here. Strange.
Anyway, the issue is that my latest blood test was posted on the UT Southwestern MyChart page. I'm looking and I see that my iron levels are extremely low. IRON <20 ug/dL (59-158 ug/dL), UNSAT IBC 249 mcg/dL (112-346 mcg/dL), TIBC Not Calculable ug/dL (262-474 ug/dL), % SATURATION Not Calculable (%20-50).
While I'm no expert and certainly not a doctor, it seems to me that I'm majorily anemic - which is probably why I feel so fatigued all the time. I have a message in to the doctor asking if I need to do anything, but so far no response. He never mentioned it the other day, but it might have been skipped over because I came in at the end of the day.
Did anyone else have this low of an iron level?
