Having trouble with blood and iron levels. Had to have 2 transfusions and 3 infusions?

I’m 68 female. Having trouble with blood and iron levels. Had to have 2 transfusions and 3 infusions. Was going up but now back down again. Last several days I’m getting a large red mark on my chin and half moons on my fingernails. What should be the next step My doctor in a local GP.

  1. hi
    there seems to be something wrong with your iron metabolism.
    Get a bone marrow examination done.
    Consult a hematologist.
    Keep taking iron and vitamin supplements.
    thanks

  2. In my opinion you should get a s.ferritin,HB electrophoresis, and if nothing showed up ..get a bone marrow exam..a hematologist can help you better than a aGP ..

  3. Hi
    Do a Transglutaminase Antibodies (tTG-IgA) to check for celiac disease , do a CBC test to confirm it is iron related first
    Good Luck
