Hi,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum
Since 7 years has your doctor ever tried to find out what is the cause of this anemia? There are various causes which you need to probe. There is no point in just taking iron tablets. A simple example, when there is water logging inside the bathroom there is no point in just clearing up the water, you need to check out where the leak is from or where the block is.
