Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to answer your query.
Though there are many causes of iron deficiency and also for increased frequency of bowel movements, one particular thing to be ruled out is malabsorption syndrome especially celiac disease.
An upper GI endoscopy with duodenal biopsy and blood tests for antibodies may be done for evaluation.

I hope that answers your question.
