I have Hepatitis C (no symptoms -- I am taking Chinese herbs). In my last
year's CBC blood results, it was seen I was seriously anemic (the test ran
4 or 5 from a
normal of 32). Since I am an every day swimmer and active, my only sympton
was a tiredness climbing stairs.
I know that Hep C patients normally store iron, and that iron may
to the Hep C virus replication.
Therefore, my question is, is my low iron count perhaps my body's response
I began eating meat and taking an iron supplement I could tolerate, and it
has now risen to just below normal.
