    Dalliwal--The cause for iron deficiency anemia (IDA), is most commonly through blood loss. This causes a pull from the Ferritin the body's iron stores. The end stage of iron stores is anemia. A 12 Hgb is considered anemic. FLFLOWERGIRL

    Dear Flflowergirl,

    Thanks for your email. I have been for all my test and ultra sound as well but funnily enough it is not being caused by loss of blood from the body. What else could be the problem you think?

    Regards
    Dalliwal

    Dalliwal--Reasons why you might not be absorbing iron can be due to ineffective iron absorption i.e., Crohns disease, Celiac, PA Pernious Anemia and gastric surgery. FLFLOWERGIRL
