Thalassemia minor or iron deficiency?
« on: March 02, 2013, 10:26:15 PM »
I have been feel anemia for about 2 months. Before it, i never feel anemia at all. My parents is healthy and not a thalasemia trait. But, my blood test result indicating so that i have thalasemia minor. This is the result :
RBC 7.03
HGB 14.4
HCT 44
MCV 62.6
MCH 20.5
MCHC 32.7
RDW 18.8

The result indicates that MCV below 70 and increased RBC are thalassemia minor, but with a very high RDW indicate iron deficiency. Before this, my diet accompanied by exercise very hard for 7 months. What I suffered is iron deficiency or thalassemia minor?
Thank you.
