  • Try to to stress just yet. Your doctor is probably just being extra careful. What the the reason he gave you?

  • Don't stress -- it is probably just a precaution.

  • probably because your on an iron suppliment and your not assimilating it properly. hemotology is just a blood doctor so they are trying to figure out why the iron isnt going through your system, sometimes its because oyu need an extra vitamin to help carry the iron through out your body. dont worry. it will be blood tests, no big. youve had plenty of those im sure.

  • I had blood tests done to figure out why my hemoglobin count gets so low. It came back that there is a problem with my red blood cells, but there's nothing they can do to "fix" it. It just lets them know that I am at risk of needing transfusions due to anemia, to keep an extra close eye on my count, and that it doesn't matter how many iron supplements they prescribe my hemoglobin is just not going to go up!
