I'm from the Uc forum so I hope you don't mind me popping in here. We deal with anemia quite frequently with Uc. Diarrhea doesn't cause anemia unless you have bleeding somewhere in your body. There is a condition called Pernicious anemia. This is where your body is low on B-12 and one of the side effects of this type of anemia is diarrhea. There are different types of anemia but as far as I know, diarrhea doesn't cause anemia. Diarrhea can be a side effect of the anemia. If you find the root cause of the anemia it might help with the diarrhea. Iron supplements can cause constipation and/or more diarrhea, depending on how your body reacts to it. Oh and on a side note, having too much diarrhea can also deplete your B-12 stored in your body.
