I just started seeing a naturopathic dr. and he requested that I go to my drs. and gather as much lab work as possible.He also did a full CBC and urine. According to him, I have iron deficiency anemia, adrenal insufficiency, acidic blood and I noticed a pattern of high RDW. He has been treating me with iron, adrenal suppliments, and various other suppliments. Now I'm showing a bacterial infection in my urinary tract with protein and trace blood.
He doesn't seem concerned about the RDW count which is alway 15.6 +. My dad had myelodysplasia and I keep running across that and possible Lupus. Had an ANA test years ago that said it was borderline.
