Good that your doc did some test to figure out why. For two years I have known that I was anemic and my GP said to take over the counter iron. I asked my obgyn to retest me, and my blood test just showed that my levels went down from 21 two yrs ago to 14. My obgyn gave me repliva iron pills for it, but did not test to see why i am anemic. I am not pregnant, and I eat lots of red meat and green leafy veggies. I do not know why I am still anemic. Does anyone have any ideas?
Thanks!

What is your age? Are you still menstruating? If so, are your periods heavy?

As you've seen on the other threads, there are so many causes of iron deficiency or anemia:

Celiac Disease
Lupus
Thyroid Disorders
Colon and/or Stomach Bleeding
Malabsorption of nutrients.
