I have had anemia for over 9 years. I use to get Iron infusions every 9 to 12 months. I has progressed to where I need them every 4 to 6 months. I wish we could figure out the cause. I do not absorb iron thru food or juice or pills. At this point I have waited 8 months and my hemoglobin is at 7. I am due to get infusions of Venefor in 2 weeks. No diagnosis over all these years. Why and Why is it progressing.
