I've had anemia problems for over 15 years. Iron infusions return my hemoglobin to normal, but my Ferritin levels always remain a paltry 12 at best. I just got back from my hematologist, and my Ferritin is over 100! I almost did a happy dance right in there in the office. Thank you Humira! This is the first medication that has ever done so much good for me :-).

Thanks! I was a little worried initially, because they said I would be seeing the doctor rather than the physician's assistant. Usually, that means I need more iron infusions. Maybe the doctor just wanted to be the one to give me the good news. He said this was the healthiest he's seen me, and that the only thing I need to do is gain some weight.

What better news could you have at Christmas?!?   Not only are you healthy (feeling good), but you were instructed to put on weight during the holiday season!  That should be really easy now.   yeah
