    Yeah I used to be someone who messed with low iron. I figured I had always been anemic and always would be. But then I landed in the hospital.

I had 4 blood transfusions. The doctors scolded me. I had a heart specialist, a hematologist, a gynecologist, and a of course a general practitioner. They told me I could have died. I could have had a stroke. I also ended up with blood clots which - embellisms - which I am not sure ... I guess could have been part of the anemia. I had iron treatments for months afterwards and periodically over the next few years. It is only recently that I've been able to go less often to the hematologist.

....and that is my anemia cautionary tale!

Good luck!
