Re: Ice and Anemia
Sep 27, 2006
I was amazed when I started reading about people with anemia eating ice. I have been eating crushed ice for about a year. I would sit with my grandson and we would polish off a cup or two of ice in the afternoon. I just thought I was addicted to it. I would be in the kitchen several times a day crushing ice. I just recently found out that I have iron deficiency anemia. Now I know why I love ice so much! Weird though!

Coral, it would be a good idea to have your iron levels checked before taking iron supplements. Too much iron is not good either and your body doesn't have a way of getting rid of the excess. Hope all turns out well and that you just like to eat ice!!
