I didn't see a B-12 and Folate test result. Especially when you are DX'ed w/anemia you should have these tests done. There is more than one type of anemia. With your family history "perhaps" there is an absorption issue that you are also dealing with. Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease (gluten intolerance; wheat, barley and rye) that can cause this and I would also ask for that test as well. Some people are B-12 and Iron deficient at the same time, even vitamin deficient in some things. Sounds like a hereditary component MAYBE.

Another idea is that you are on a larger dose of PPI and that will also cause you not to absorb as much iron. You must have acid (that is why it is in your supplement). A decrease of stomach acid will decrease your absorption rate. You are on prevacid 2x daily. Do you know why your stomach is sick? It very well may be part of your problem???

If you are having heavy periods or even mild this also adds to iron loss. All of these issues = lower production of Hgb = anemia. FLFLOWERGIRL:cool:
