I seem to have anemia. Normal hemoglobin count for men is 14 - 16 grams per deciliter. I came in under 14 a few years ago during a routine physical, and again tested at 13.4 during my physical last week. The doctor suggests this may be nothing to worry about, as 13.4 is so close to the normal range. However, I saw him at an HMO, and my impression of HMOs is that one has to be aggressive/proactive to insure that one receives necessary care. On the other hand, maybe he's absolutely right -- and 13.4 *is* nothing to worry about. I take vitamin supplements, and should be getting plenty of B12, iron and folic acid. I have shown some anemia symptoms -- fatigue, and mild headaches -- but the symptoms haven't been pronounced. Comments, anyone?
