Anemia shown in the blood test. What is the treatment?

I am male 67 years old. My Heamoglobin is 124 g/l and my haematocrit is 0.38. I have had this level for years. I have had the bone marrow tested - nothing nasty. I don't smoke and the rest of my bloods are fine. My doctor has no suggestions. My thoughts are that slight anaemia slows you down. Whilst I am not agressively fighting the onset of old age I exercise regularly and would like to give myself every opportunity to lead a well existence for many years yet.
What should i do

Hi
Thanks for using Health Care Magic Forum,

Anemia can be due to Impaired production of iron
Increased destruction
Loss of Blood
You are male with hb-124g/l is not to be worried as you will improve as on diet.

Worm infestation can also lead to decrease hemoglobin level.
Start on with tab.Albendazole once in 6 months. ( You can do a stool examination to look for ova or cyst of parasites)

Vitamin C aids in the body's ability to absorb iron, so taking oral iron supplements with orange juice is of benefit

Increase your food stuff containing green leafy vegetables

I Hope I Provided Useful Information. Do ask Furthur Questions to help You get well soon.
