Lol yeah I assumed it was rectal bleeding!
I would talk to your PCP. THAT probably isn't normal! I wonder if it has something to do with the amount of iron your RBCs are carrying.
I would but I just saw them all GP/GI/Neurologist after I paid out of pocket for full labs for anemia etc.
Because I have been supplementing with iron for 4 months now I am finally just into the good range for iron, iron saturation etc. There is plenty more room before I get to the middle of the range. The RBC was squarely in the middle and the GI doc said that apparently is all the iron I need and no need to double the intake.
Just trying to figure out if dark red almost black is a good thing or a bad thing. Maybe I have been anemica a long time and now that I am in the low end of normal it expected to be this dark. I really do not know and I am not finding much via Google. Perphaps I should go to the coumadin-clinic and let them cut me again for the INR number ask them what they think of the color.
