I've had anemia twice in the last couple of years. The first time, my B12 was on the low side of normal, and my serum iron was on the high side, as was my iron saturation percentage. Ferritin was normal, though. Anyway, I had a colonoscopy and an upper GI endoscopy and everything looked fine. My periods are extremely light, so that's not likely to be it. Nobody could figure out a cause for the anemia, so the doctor put me on iron and B12 supplements and eventually the anemia went away. Now it's back. I don't have the results of my iron test yet, but I'm wondering about iron overload. Has anyone had experience with this condition (hemachromatosis)? I believe that too much iron can cause a drop in hemoglobin too.
