RESULTS ARE IN...
A little more history...
Anemia runs in my family. My mother has been anemic most of her life (at least since she started getting physicals). At this point her doctor has just told her whenever it's TOM, take iron pills.
The first (full)physical I ever had, I was 22/23yo I was anemic, needed to take 600-1200% of the DV iron per day. After about a month, went back in, still too low. Took iron for another month-ish, then I was good to go.
Tested on Friday. Had my little episode during the testing (hoping that everything is order for my to begin TTC this month). Supposed to get the results on Tuesday. Called in and found out they had to order another test. ?Another test? What was wrong with the first test...of course I didn't think about these things until I was off the phone, so I didn't get to ask.
Today (Wednesday), I am anxiously awaiting thier call, thinking that there is no way I have enough iron because I didn't take it as long or have as high of a dose as the last time I took these pills. I am heading out the door when my phone rings..
It's the doc. My iron, is TOO HIGH!
Holy crap, never thought that would happen in my life, that I would be too high. And now I have to deal with being too high ;)
My goodness, I wish I had dials on my body that showed all of my "levels"...Sure would make everything else easier. Adjust as necessary.
Iron - good
Thyroid - good
Fiber - Low
Protein - Normal
Yeah...that would be nice. ;)
