Blood count going down, down, down

Post by Binalongtime »

I know I'm one of the lucky ones as I've been in remission for three years now, but I've just got back the results of my umpteenth blood test showing a low red blood count, low protein, and pretty low iron levels considering the fact I've had two half-hour stints on a drip over the last three months. I've just moved and don't have a gastroenterologist yet, so I'm trying to piece the puzzle together myself. Has anyone had a similar experience and found an effective way of fighting malabsorption and anaemia? Any advice much appreciated.

Blood count going down down down

My last count was 2500. Normal range is 4000 to 10000. I can't really recall if I rode prior to the last blood test, but chances are good that I did at least a day or two prior. I've fluctuated over the past few months, with the count getting as high as 3600, I think.
