Does anemia cause hypo or does hypo cause anemia?

My new MD thinks I may be anemic. Anemia does run in my family, as well as thyroid problems, so I'm wondering what causes what. I'm hoping my doc will continue treating the thryoid if that's causing the low iron and not just treat the low iron, thinking it's a separate problem.
