Popsicle Craving

What does it mean if you crave or eat popsicles all day? I'm not talking about eating one but four to five a day.

Re: Popsicle Craving

Ice cravings can indicate iron deficiency - I'd go to the doctor and ask to have your hemaglobin, rbc and ferretin tested.

Re: Popsicle Craving

And I thought I was the only one craving popsicles. Embarrassed to be buying so many I told the girl at the checkout they were for the daycare I was running.
You need to go ASAP and get your blood levels checked. I am anemic (hemoglobin 7, ferritin 3) and waiting to go into the hospital for another transfusion. When my iron levels go up - the cravings stop. Please go see your doctor soon.
