i kind of feel like i might be anemic. i know they test for a lot of things during our monthly blood tests, but i don't know what exactly they test for, & if they would be able to tell if i was anemic or not. does anyone else know? i'm just thinking, that if they DO check for that, then i'm obviously not, or they would've told me... but if they DON'T, i guess i need to get checked.

Do you have the lab slip? I get my cholesterol, triglycerides and HCG tested, and as far as I know that wouldn't give an obvious indication of anemia. If your doctor has the lab perform a CBC then that would show anemia. Before I started Accutane they did a CBC.
