try getting zinc and folate tested also, they ought to be looking at those too if you're anemic.
zinc deficiency results in iron dysregulation and deposition, as i've said a hundred times if i've said it once.
and zinc actually helps correct iron deficiency anemia too, not to mention normalize your low ms uric acid level,
helps your body use vitamin A for your eyes,
helps mens and womens reproductive health,
is strongly anti-inflammatory,
helps improve d3 absorption,
helps repair liver damage,
can heal chronic skin ulcers too if you are zinc deficient,
boosts the effectiveness of the blood brain barrier,
tightens up junctions between the cells of the intestine so you don't end up with permeability or 'leaky gut',
etc etc etc

my approach: no meds so far - just nutrient-dense anti-inflammatory whole foods, and supplements where needed
