Ferritin levels and ale
I was glancing through the sticky on sle criteria and noticed anemia as a blood disorder/concern. With several doctors seeing me for different things, it doesn't seem they have any communication with one another at all. I've started keeping my labs in a binder. The oncologist (who is only watching and scanning me) recommended I take some iron, but didn't imply it was a big deal. In looking at my lab spreadsheet (gotta love excel), my ferritin is always 4. My total iron is 40 and saturation % is 11. Do these numbers need to be addressed and is that something important for my rheum to know?
*SLE not ALE (stupid autocorrect)
