I have been anemic for years but never took care of it because i couldn't handle the iron pills. Well things are just getting worse, my ferratin level is too low, hospital lab will not go further than their lowest level and mine is less than that, hemoglobin is at 88. I am currently taking a natural product called hemoplex and will have blood tests soon to see if my levels are up. My problem is i have lost a lot of weight and do not want to lose anymore but cannot seem to maintain my weight because of the severe loss of appetite. I used to love food, can't even be bothered to eat now, also was eating ice cubes for two years, have recently stopped craving them so i am hoping my levels are up.
I read a lot of women gain weight, anyone out there having my weight loss, issue?

I did lose a little bit of weight in the beginning but after a while of taking iron my appetite came back and my pica went away (thank God) my teeth were actually breaking from the constant ice chewing. Give it some time I'm sure you will bounce back. The problem with anemia is it's something that takes forever. I would say if your PICA is gone that you are probably having a rise in numbers.
