... low counts. Seems confusing to be on Coumadin and taking iron supplements. Any ideas? Thank You
Actually its not confusing at all. They do 2 different things. The iron helps make red blood cells that you need. The coumadin prevents clotting. When people call coumadin a blood thinner, they are actually wrong. The consistancy of the blood does not change. Its ability to clot is what changes.
This makes a lot of sense. If the iron alone does not correct your anemia you can add vitamins B12 and C. This will help boost the iron into your bone marrow which should hopefully increase your RBC. If you notice any kind of bleeding you need to call your doctor or go to the emergency room. Do not wait. Best wishes.
