well they like to test kidneys ect to see it you r likely to suffer heart atacks or stroke ect in laterst life that what jp said think they do tyroid as well and i guess iron lol looked at scale for blood pressue 150 not good it quite a way in high blood pressure area . some of the tabs on can cause you to bruise easy just as you get one thing under control another comes along never been to doc so much

Good luck valh I'm also anaemic but the GP hasn't given me anything for it. The Rhumie consultant was surprised to hear that and told me to ask the GP about it. Apparently it's Ferritin I'm low on and there can be all types of reasons for anaemia.

hi Val, sounds a bit miserable. I bruise easily when they take blood as on steroids, also makes my blood pressure high too. So am on a diet to get my weight down a bit but it won't help the brusing lol!
