[QUOTE=sahaira]Can you have Iron Deficiency [B]AND [/B] Pernicious anemia at the same time? I have the Iron anemia but am wondering if you can have low b12 at the same time. Would both show up in your blood tests?? I have more symptoms that would be like the B12 deficiency then the Iron...[/QUOTE]
Yes. The Pernicious anemia, can cause iron deficiency anemia. The b-12 in fact has to be there in order to repair the iron deficiency anemia due to the way iron binds to blood cells to carry oxygen etc. Way too long an explanation, so the answer is yes.
