    Default Iron infusions

    If someone has anemia of Chronic Disease due to Rheumatoid Arthritis, Ferritin is an acute phase reactant so it would be elevated. How do you decide how much iron to give? In other words, does ferritin play a role in determining how much iron pt should receive?

    You need to direct this question to Fidel. He's a MD,... the proper one to ask.
