Anyone out there with iron deficiency anaemia? I'm diagnosed with Thalassemia alpha minor and recently found out my haemoglobin level (HB) is 111 and Ferritin 7 (which is really low). I suspect I may be having iron deficiency anaemia. However my main concern is my Thalassemia background as I've found online that if my HB level drops further I may require blood transfusion as the placenta won't be effectively transporting blood and oxygen to bub. I'm 28 weeks at the moment and is very stressed out as I have lost a child at 36 weeks not knowing exactly why. I'm currently taking iron tablets hopefully my iron stores will come back up soon. I will also request to monitor my HB level frequently. I'm just worried about the timing and whether are there anything else I can do to improve my situation or ease my anxieties.
