    Any way to raise hematocrit fast?

    Is there a way to raise hematocrit from 38% to 40+ in a week short of a blood transfusion? I recently discovered I'm anemic (felt faint and had some bloodwork done) and I have a blood test coming for my job, and it's imperative I'm not anemic by then. Iron will take too long, what about equipoise ?

    Thanks.

    I don't know mate. we usually get the other end of the question, how to lower it.

    when you googled your question, what did you find out?

    Procrit is the only drug that I know of that can do that.

    38% is within normal range and shouldn't cause you to feel faint.
    But Anadrol and some supplemental iron should increase it faster than anything (apart from epo, maybe).

    whats the Hb? i thought you might be interested to find out why you're anemic and treating the underlying problem, instead of correcting it artificially.

    Hb in g/dl is 12,6, range is 13,5 - 18,0


    I'm having ferritin, iron, TIBC and some more stuff checked, but, as I said, I need to inflate my hematocrit fast for the bloodwork.

    Maybe it's my lack of sleep or too low E2 that's making me feel under the weather, I took some blood yesterday to check for it, but since my hematocrit was so low I thought it might be the cause, Occam's razor if you will.

    My iron is low, and pretty sure it is what made me feel faint. I'm on a big deficit like I was before but have been taking iron for a while now I don't feel faint anymore. Sure there could be other factors, but it will be interesting to see your other values. My iron was well below range, and absorption is a problem, has me taking iron protein plus three times a day. Make sure you are careful though, best to do this under advice from the doctor.
