... Iron will fix general Iron Deficiency anemia, but not PA for example; it has to be treated with B-12. You become anemic for different reasons, as you know, but it is all treated the same.

... Hi, I have just been diagnosed as having slight anemia. I have been on Proton Pump Inhibitors for about 18months and was wondering if they could be the cause. Has anyone found that they were the possible cause of anemia. Thanks. (0 replies)
... I have been facing a lot of the same thing, and I ran into the same skepticism when I mentioned the PPI as a potential cause, because after just about every other test with no other bleeding found, my period was the only factor left they would consider (I will admit it was an issue, but it had been all my life without the anemia) - and given that my HGB was down to 8.8 - and...
