husband has been diagnosed with iron deficieny anemia. Was referred by doc for colonoscopy and endoscopy but we have decided against this as he had a stent fitted in January and is on Ticagrelor to stop blood clots forming around stent. If they cause even the slightest damage when doing those procedures he could have a heavy bleed and as he doesnt have a common blood type we dont want to risk this as a blood transfusion may be delayed while they get suitable blood.
his haemaglobin level is 81, ferritin is 5 and folate is 5.2. What I would like to know is what iron tablet people recommend that does not cause too many side effects as we have to discuss this with the doc on Friday.
any suggestions would be helpful
