Blood count going down, down, down

I know I'm one of the lucky ones as I've been in remission for three years now, but I've just got back the results of my umpteenth blood test showing a low red blood count, low protein, and pretty low iron levels considering the fact I've had two half-hour stints on a drip over the last three months. I've just moved and don't have a gastroenterologist yet, so I'm trying to piece the puzzle together myself. Has anyone had a similar experience and found an effective way of fighting malabsorption and anaemia? Any advice much appreciated.

My last count was 2500. Normal range is 4000 to 10000. I can't really recall if I rode prior to the last blood test, but chances are good that I did at least a day or two prior. I've fluctuated over the past few months, with the count getting as high as 3600, I think.
