Sideroblastic anemia. Presence of anemia + ringed sideroblasts. Hypochromic, BIMODAL RBC population. +/- Pappenheimer bodies (iron). Increased iron stores in BM.  All iron studies are elevated (but distinguish from hemochromocytosis because SA has low hgb and low MCV). CAUSES: ACQUIRED = RARS, meds, alcohol, Pearson syndrome and low copper. VAST MAJORITY HAVE CLONAL DEFECT. MACROCYTIC. >15% RS. INHERITED = rare, X-linked. ALAS2 gene. MICROCYTIC. Can try giving a ton of B6.

Anemia can be an underlying symptom of an illness or a sign of a health problem. However, anemia is not a disease itself. If you are unsure if you have anemia, the best way to find out is to go to your doctor and get yourself checked out. There are types of anemia that are caused by the malfunctioning of the body, such as sideroblastic anemia, hemolytic anemia and sickle anemia. These types of anemia cannot be treated with these natural remedies. It requires proper diagnosis and…
