Anemia
    #4725599 - 09/28/05 03:51 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

My mom has recently decided to get me tested for anemia.  My sister

told her that since I sit around and sleep all day, I may lack iron.

The fact of the matter is that there isn't jack fucking shit to do in

this town. 


My question is, how do they test you for anemia?  Will any drug use

somehow show up on the test?  Or anything else I need to know about?

Any information is appreciated.

When I was tested for anemia, they just pricked my fingertip, squeezed it to get a drop of blood to fall into the testing machine, and then used the machine to measure the number of red blood cells in that drop.

Unless they run a full battery of tests on your blood, they wouldn't get results for other substances in your bloodstream.

Good. :thumbup:

The part I worry about is if my mom is actually having me tested for

anemia or is just telling me that and actually having me tested for

other things.  :sad:


Thanks for the reply.  :heart:

If they are just doing a pinprick test, they won't have much of a sample for doing other tests. Be suspicious if they take a vial!

Why let her be in charge, though? If you are old enough to post here, you are old enough to make your own Dr. appt. and dictate what you are tested for.

Good point. I didn't really think about that. I just assumed that

since it was her insurance or whatever she could get what she wanted

done. But I'm on there too so if they decide to take a vial, they

can suck a nut!

I got tested about 5 years ago and they found out I had Thalassemia minor, I guess which is a pretty common type of anemia, often found in Italians. With this type red blood cells are smaller than normal, making you tired a lot and weary after any amount of physical activity. Also makes you sleep a lot. It especially sucks for me because I'm a smoker, i can't even walk up a flight of stairs without being out of breath.

Even though it causes lower iron levels my doctor recommended that i do not take an iron supplement because it's very unhealthy for your kidneys.
