Over last summer I had a physical and the CBC showed I was slightly anemic. I have researched anemia on the net and learned that exercise can be a contributing factor.
I am 38 years old and used to weigh 268 lbs in August 2005 and am now at 185 lbs. I cut red meat, saturated fat, and sugars out of my diet, eat lots of fruits and vegetables and ride my bike at least 17 miles a day.
I had two CBCs before this one and the level of hemoglobin has been decreasing since I started my diet and exercise routine. I have had three CBCs since last summer and the levels have been consistent.
I do not have any symptoms of anemia and I had a colonoscopy and there was no internal bleeding contributing to the condition.
Has anyone here experienced anything like this?
