new poster here from the UK. I'm very glad places like this exist so people that are not really clued up on anaemia can get some advice.
I have suspected I have anaemia for over 15 years now; having continuously had many of the symptoms. ( which i won't bore you with)
Anyway, it has recently occurred to me that often the NHS blood reference ranges are not always correct and people have been denied diagnoses and treatment because of this. I was hoping a member on here with good knowledge and experience of this could help me in interpreting my recent blood results.
Serum Iron level: 24.9 umol/L
Serum TIBC: 69.4 umol/L
Serum ferritin: 126 ug/L
Serum vitamin B12: 394 ng/l
Serum folate: 10.6 ug/L
I have been trying to understand these results, and my GP insists as they are all in the reference range there is no need for follow-ups. I hope someone is able to offer a further insight for me, and perhaps even suggest further tests to rule out other things.
Anyway, thanks very much to anyone that can have a look,
