A high hemoglobin/hematocrit level indicates too much iron in the blood, according to the doctor. But how can a person also have anemia at the same time as having too much iron? (Also low in Vitamin B12)? It seems like an oxymoron.
I understand what you are saying my last blood work showed my iron was fine but my B-12 was low. Last year both were low and had to get iron infusions and take B-12 shots. Now just my B-12. No one ever explains. Maybe on here?
