I asked our lovely Heathcare Assistant for a full blood count when I had my last B12 jab last week, because I'm feeling breathless again. My haemoglobin came back at 119 (115-165), which is just in range, but it's dropped since my last test six months ago, and I've been taking Spatone every day since then. My haematocrit has also dropped just below range again at 0.349 (0.360-0.470).
I know Spatone isn't a high iron dose, but I struggle to take anything else due to IBS. I take Spatone, a multivit and folic acid every day, and have a B12 jab about weekly (8 weekly at the surgery, supplemented by SI in between).
I've not spoken to the surgery yet; I suspect they'll tell me all is well. However, as I'm breathless and tired, what would you recommend?
