Has anyone out there figured out how to deal with anemia?
My hemoglobin is 10.1 (up from 9.0 2 months ago)
I'm taking iron supplement, eating well, exercising when I can.

My mother has B 12 deficiency which causes a type of aniema.
Have you been tested for that type of aniema?

She takes a monthly injection to increase her b12.

Lupus patients often have vitamin B deficiencies... you might ask your Dr if you are low and what amount of supplementation he suggests.

Aren't dark leafy greens good sources of iron?

We don't often have questions about anemia, sorry but I don't have much experience in that area. Let us know what you find out, maybe someone else has the same questions!

You can have more than one autoimmune disorder. Consider celiac disease as the source of your anemia even if you do not have any intestinal issues (like me). In fact, more patients with celiac disease present with anemia than any other symptom. Learn more about how to get a simple blood test from the University of Chicago's celiac website.
