Hi, I have APS and no spleen. Approximately every 3 months or so I notice that my hair sheds a bit more than normal and that I am feeling weary. I'll as my doc if I can have a Ferratin test together with the INR, and the results will always come back low. Then I will buy some iron supplements form the Pharmacy and be as right as rain again.
I spoke to the doctor as this is a regular recurrence. She said it could be Chrohns disease, but that test came back negative or Bowel cancer!! (Very reassuring).
I have no spleen, and understand that the spleen is a ferratin store, i'm also a vegetarian, which I am sure will have a impact.
My question is: does anyone else with APS suffer from this? Could it somehow be linked to the condition?
