I saw a gastro surgeon doctor today, I asked if I could be anaemic based on my bloods done in January and the fact I have been so unwell.
Despite my Red Cell Count being low, MCV being high, MCH Being in higher range, B12 showing as in 400s for first time in 10 years and Folate being very low, he said it is medicaly impossible for me to be medicaly anaemic as when he looked in my eye, it was red and not pale!
Anybody else had an old school doctor state this to them? Why bother putting me through a blood test if it is as simple as looking in my red eye?
Is there any truth to his statement?
