I went to the doctor recently and he said i had a slight lack of iron in my body and a slightly low blood count, would this mean i would fail my medical?
Depends how much you want it. It sounds exactly what I have, a lack of iron or iron deficiency whatever they call it. It most likely will be a form of hemophilia, be it A, B or C and that is a bar from entering ANY ARM in ANY JOB of the forces being it Army, Navy or RAF.
If they haven't medically declared that you have it you may be able to get in to the forces and not go back for a secondary blood test to confirm the doctors suspicions, however medically this is not advised.
If however the situation occurred that you get diagnosed with it during RT then I should imagine you will get MD, but I'm not sure what will happen should you pass out and then it come out.
I wish I had never had the follow up test, it had never effected me in anything I had ever done (football, boxing, rugby etc.) and also through operations that I had where bleeding was inevitable. It had and most probley will never effect me but it has *text deleted**text deleted*ed up my dream of joining the forces. End of the day it is your choice, it is your life, medically you should go for it to make sure, but if I were you I'd body swerve it, like I wish I had.
Best of luck whatever you choose.
The thread was simply locked to avoid yet another tedius argument, however I'll merge the threads and unlock it to let others witness the folly of allowing unqualified medical diagnosis on an internet forum.
I was pissed off at the fact you gave a piss poor comparison in regards to the headache, and the fact that you locked the thread without me having a chance to justify and correct myself. It's all done now anyways.
