I have low Iron and blood count

I have just come out of hospital with dangerously low iron and blood count. I was given daily iron via I.V. for two weeks. Anyone know how I can keep the levels up? (I was feeling really really weak) am feeling a bit stronger daily). I also have diabetes

You need to eat a good balanced diet with iron and protien rich foods. If the levels are still low, then they would have prescribed you medications to continue. Do not stop taking medications on your own. Go for regular follow ups. Keep your sugars under control.

My sister has been anemia most of her life. She is on iron tablets. A month ago she had a fall at work and ended up with a hairline tear in her knee. Then she slipped on the crutches and fell again and brushed her opposite side from the wet walkway. She is now using a cane. She has not had any treatment for the tear in her knee as of yet. When she did her annual blood work it came back with much improvement in her iron to the point she was not anemic; but her red blood count was low. Doc has referred her to a urologist....what could be up. He says he is being extra causious and not to worry....
