Small red blood cell size without Anemia
Is small red blood cell size indicative of anything other than Anemia?  Our doctor says my daughter is not Anemic, but blood test reveal abnormally small sized red blood cells.

This conditon is called Thalasemia a disorder found mainly in people who live in the mediterranean, northern Africa and Asian countries. I was diagnosised over 15 years ago and now it has raised questions with my health. ***@****

I was just diagnosed with a Viatmin B-12 deficiency... Non-anemic with very small red blood cells. The B-12 deficiency is causing my blood cells to be so small.

I am now taking monthly B-12 injections along with a daily B Complex orally.
