Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum
Since 7 years has your doctor ever tried to find out what is the cause of this anemia? There are various causes which you need to probe. There is no point in just taking iron tablets. A simple example, when there is water logging inside the bathroom there is no point in just clearing up the water, you need to check out where the leak is from or where the block is.

My husband, age 62, lifelong non-smoker, limited caffeine consumption (1 serving per day), and no ETOH, currently on treatment for HTN, GERD, hypercholesterolemia, and IBS. He had a negative colonoscopy 6 mos ago. A year ago he had a bovine aortic valve replacement and a single secondary CA bypass. Prior to the heart surgery he was very anemic. That resolved with oral iron. Now at his annual physical he has a normal H&H but very low ferritin (15). His mother had a coagulopathy and his sister has IHS. He was tested for IHS but the test was negative. I wonder if there are other tests that could be done (blood tests) re iron stores issues. Our PCP has just said he needs to go back to GI for a repeat colonoscopy. I think that a narrow look at a potentially wider issue. What do you think?
