Patient :I am a 14 year old girl, I suffer from iron deficiency anemia. I recently got my blood report, i had done two tests, the hematology test and i had my iron level checked, my iron level was 31, my MCV was 77 and my RBC morphology showed (+) microcytosis. Everything else in my blood report was within the normal range. I think my iron deficiency anemia is most probably genetic as I have been experiencing the symptoms from an early age and have no iron absorption problems. My mother also had severe iron deficiency anemia. I wanted to know if Ferrous Sulphate tablets 195 mg would be suitable for me? I have no medical conditions that will be affected by it or any allergies.
Symptoms: Chest pain, high pulse rate, pale skin, pallor, fatigue, lightheadedness, brittle nails etc.
