Re: Anyone have an anemic child?

My dd isn't anemic, but my mom, me and two of my sisters were. We all had to take liquid iron supplements at one time or another and they were nasty . To help with it I have been taking a prenatal vit since I was 15 and so does one of my sisters. For us it has been something that tends to resurface. Diet changes can help, but not for everyone and I do not eat red meat normally and am allergic to spinach (no really, like swell up go to the ER allergic) so that ruled out two of the best sources of iron for me. If I was you I'd try diet things first, but if it doesn't work give the supplements. When I'm anemic I can tell with in a few days, it sucks. I get weak and am tired all the time.
