I'm into year 4 of W&W. Last year I learned that my Iron was a little low and DR. Suggested that I take Ferrous Glucinate tabs. At that Time my HGB was at 11.5. Although my count improved, ever so slightly, it began to drop again, slowly. Had an upper GI and colon inspection performed indicating no signs of bleeding. About a month ago, my present Hematologist suggested 2 sessions of Feraheme infusion to get my iron levels up and assured me that would do the trick. I had one session about two weeks ago and the 2nd one, just yesterday. When they did a blood draw yesterday, prior to the infusion, my HGB count did not show any sign of increasing. Actually went down from 10.8 two weeks ago to 10.7. Anyone know if this is normal ? (Two years ago, my level was at 13.2, and so there has been a steady decline)
