When they did the finger stick to check my iron level I came out at around 50%! Wow. I ate spinach salads all week. I am sure that is why it was so much higher than usual. Last time I was around 41 or 42%. My blood pressure was low - 99/59. That's only the second time I've seen both numbers below 100. The other time was when I took a blood pressure test at WalMart. Last time I gave blood my blood pressure was 122/66.
