    Advice

    • Patients with an appropriate marrow response (high reticulocyte index) typically are not evaluated further.
    • Patients with an inappropriate marrow response (low reticulocyte index) may be further evaluated for nutritional deficiencies or marrow abnormalities.
    • Always consider transfusion and/or iron supplementation in anemic patients.
