Suggest Treatment For Iron Deficiency Anemia
iron deficiency anemia is one of the anemias
anemia is a general term. Anemia can be caused by various disorders. Iron deficiency is one of them. Lack of iron prevents the bone marrow from producing adequate numbers of red blood cells with adequate quantity of hemoglobin and this is called iron deficiency anemia. It is corrected with iron supplementation but the cause of deficiency has to be found.

Please use your follow-up questions if you need more details.
please upload the test reports
It will greatly help me to understand your situation if you upload the test reports. You can either scan them and upload them or take a photo (with your cell phone or any camera that connects to the PC) and upload it. You can upload it using the interface of healthcaremagic or upload them elsewhere and just provide the link to me.
If you don't have anemia then it's very unlikely that your iron is not enough. We usually check the iron and ferritin levels when the hematocrit is lower than it used to be. There are other indicators of iron deficiency as well like the MCV (mean corpuscular volume) which gets to lower levels when iron is lacking. Any value lower than 80fL is low and any value that is lower than previous values is also considered to be low.
I'll be more specific when you send me the reports...
