Have low HB. Took ferrous fumarate. Platelet and rbc are high. Feels tired. Looking for suggestion

During my pregnancy 4 years ago (40 yrs), my Hb always low (10-11gm). Now my age is 44 yrs, I still have the same problem. When I took ferrous femaret my Hb up to 11gm only. After that I stop ferous femaret and check again and also my Hb only 10.1gm. My platelate, rbc are high. I forgot the rest. Today I sent FBP/PBF for Ix. I only feel tired but I still can do exercise 3x/week, go work, study and sleep around 10 o clock every night.

Hemoglobin is the amount of circulating red blood cells in your blood. Rbc is rezponsible in distributing oxygen in all organs of your body. So a low hemoglobin will result to lower amount of oxygen delivered in your organs and will surely result to fatigue, weakness or feeling of exhaustion. Correct your hemoglobin and you will have improved overall performance.

Thank you.
