just curious. What first led to me being tested for celiac was that I was very fatigued, went to the dr. and found out my hemoglobin level was 5 !! Went for procedures today and none of the nurses could believe I was functioning at all at that level. I'm guessing my body just compensated for it, and it happened so slowly it wasn't obvious how sick I really was.
I had a blood transfusion and have been on iron for a month and post transfusion, my level has stayed at a steady 10. Still low, but acceptable. I was hoping it would get at least into normal range by now.
