just wondering somwthing


Lantern Swinger
I am going for a blood test and i was wondering if lets say my iron was low to warranted iron medication. I am having my blood glucose mesaured. if that comes back i am diabetic I know I will not be able to join.

if i have have to take iron tables for anaemia? i am having this blood test because I am constantly tired


Go and have the tests done and then worry if there is something to worry about. No point in getting into a whole discussion about iron deficiency anaemia or diabetes without any evidence.

Good luck.

As correctly stated, rather than second guess the possible outcome and the implications, it's probably best to await diagnosis. It could be cancer or it could be you need to go to bed earlier.

NS is completely right - wait for the test results, then you will know more. As a point of interest - any condition that requires ongoing medication is generally a abr to Service entry. There are very few exceptions to this and require further investigation and a long period (years) of stability on treatment before being considered.
