... Eating large amounts of ice is a sign that your ferritin is low. I chewed ice for years. When I went to my first hematologist appointment, the first thing he asked was did I chew ice. I said yes, he then asked to see my finger nails. He said I had very low ferritin level which was 2 and due to the recent ulcer bleeding, I was anemic. But my ferritin was low way before I became...

... It's crazy that there are doctors out there who tell their patients they're ok when their serum ferritin comes back at the lower levels. Anyone who's serum ferritin is below 70ng/dl MUST take iron supplements. Your body will divert iron away from your hair and nails and skin if your serum ferritin is below 70ng/dl. You will not receive the entire benefit of any physical... (24 replies)

... When I was severely anemic and receiving IV iron my nailbeds were very pale as well as the palms of my hands. My hematologist always checks my nails and my hands when he examines me. I also have Raynauds and when I'm cold they also can turn bluis or purplish because of the poor circulation. Hope this helps! ... (9 replies)
... Maybe it is a mild form of Raynaud's syndrome. I always get colder than other people and my fingers have gone numb in cold weather before when no one else's did. But it's strange that my fingers just started turning purple again recently (they were also purple when I was anemic, maybe just a coincidence)... (9 replies)

... I have bluish purple nails as well - not all of the time but especially when I'm cold. I have had all kinds of lung and heart tests and nothing comes back showing any problems. I thought maybe it was the anemia as well. (9 replies)
... I agree... when I was severely anemic my nails were very pale/white. The blueish/purple color could indicate a circulation problem like the person above me just said... (9 replies)
... Yeah, I think when you are anemic, your nailbeds are more pale and lacking color. I would think that bluish means there is a lack of circulation???? (9 replies)
... purple. However, right now I seem to have a normal amount of energy. I read on the internet that your nails look clear in color when you have anemia, so I am confused. Does anyone know why my nails frequently turn purple? ... (9 replies)

... Some thoughts from an increasingly experienced iron-deficient anemic: I once read a post mentioning that the associated hair loss won't resolve until ferritin climbs higher....maybe in the 30 range if I recall the comments correctly. It can take a while to reach those levels when the body is depleted, as it doesn't have the luxury of storing iron to increase ferritin... (6 replies)
