Re: Does anemia cause hypo or does hypo cause anemia?

I don't know the answer for sure but I'm pretty certain that due to our absorption issues arising from hypothyroidism many of us are deficient in iron and other minerals and vitamins (be sure to check your D and B12 levels too if you haven't already).

If you are low in your free T levels and symptomatic you need thyroid treatment. Increasing your iron isn't going to fix that.
