My company provided a blood test for the third year in a row. And, for the third year in a row my hemoglobin and Hematocrit dropped. Its been dropping about a point a year and is now sitting at the bottom of the normal rannge - 12.7 Hemoglobin and 37.2 Hematocrit. I scheduled a physical since its been three years and, will have it with my doctor on Wednesday of this week. I plan to ask for something to boost it up some however, I sort of doubt he will agree to it. Not sure at what point one would be a candidate for a boost. But it concerns me that these numbers seem to keep creeping down.
I am curious as to what some of you have for Hemoglobin and Hematocrit numbers. I am 58 years old and all my other blood numbers are pretty much in the middle of their respective range - including iron.
