I was diagnosed as anemic when I was pregnant with my daughter, who is now 25; my OB-GYN prescribed prenatal vitamins with iron, and I thought the problem ended with the pregnancy. I am now diabetic and hypertensive, and recently, while seeing my doctor in regard to these conditions, his PA told me that once anemic, always anemic. I was kind of surprised because I didn't realize that I could still be anemic. Was my doc's PA right? I have the symptoms of being anemic, but they're also pretty much the same symptoms as those for diabetes. I'm already taking a potload of meds for those two ailments, and really don't want to add to them, but if taking an iron suppliment will help with some of the fatigue and shortness of breath, I guess I could deal with it.
