Let me take a look.

Expert:  Dr. Scott replied 7 months ago.

Do you have heavy menstrual cycles?

Do you have any diarrhea?

Expert:  Dr. Scott replied 7 months ago.

You need to have your iron stores in your body check.

Expert:  Dr. Scott replied 7 months ago.

This might not be caused by iron deficiency.

This can be from anemia of chronic disease.

Do you have any other medical problems?

Expert:  Dr. Scott replied 7 months ago.

Your blood work indicates microcytic anemia.

You should be screening for your iron stores with serum iron, ferritin, TIBC.

If those are normal, you need a pathologist to look at your RBC for sideroblastic anemia or thalassemia.

If you don't have either of these diseases, then you have anemia of chronic disease and should be worked up for inflammatory diseases such as malignancy, infection, rheumatoid disease, lupus, renal diseaseer diseae, and endocrine disorders.

Taking iron will not help these diseases.

I hope this helps.
