Thanks for asking.

There are various causes of anemia:

Nutritional- deficiency of iron, b12, and folic acid
Anemia of chronic diseases- like in hypothyroidism,rheumatoid arthritis etc.
Blood loss
worm infestation
drugs like methotrexate

All these causes singly or in combination can lead to anemia .

You need to under go some investigations to see what exactly is the cause and the treatment will depend upon the cause.
