Anyone out there have increased canker sores due to anemia? My doctor says it's a possible cause. A few months ago I started getting groups of them and then was diagnosed with mild iron-deficiency anemia. I've been on iron for 5 weeks but I just got another batch of them, worse than ever. Should I be concerned the supplements aren't working?
On doing a little info-grazing, apparently the common culprits of choice seems to be deficiencies in iron, B-vits, and/or zinc. If you have food sensitivities, this can cause chronic bouts of canker sores. Stress is also a biggie.
I agree with FLFLOWERGIRL about getting your Bs tested.
