Totally not trying to harp on this but its not the ANEMIA that has to be fixed, it is the underlying cause that has to be fixed. Anemia in and of itself isn't the problem, it is merely a symptom of something bigger which is why just treating anemia with supplements, etc. won't work. I fully agree that without CBC and chemistry, you have no idea what is going on or where to start.
