I'm so glad I've joined this site as I've had great support so far. Following on from my last post I want to make sure I'm fully prepared for my GP appointment on Tuesday. I was told in a phonecall about 3 years ago by the hospital that I have PA and to go and buy tablets. I never followed it up as I didn't realise how serious it could be. Recently as a result of asking for a blood test I have severe iron deficiency anemia and vitamin D3 deficiency. I have two queries one is from my blood test results below can anyone tell me if I have macrocytic or Microcytic anemia please.
So far I have printed off symptom lists, the BMJ article about vitamin b12 and the BSH guidelines. Also am I right in thinking that PA can cause the iron deficiency.
Also just about the Vitamin D3 deficiency I was given 20,000 iu capsules and told to take 5 a month does this sound like enough. In my first post someone mentioned taking magnesium also could anyone advise what kind of supplement to take please.
Hopefully someone can help as I'm already very anxious about this GP visit.
