What could be the cause of anaemia?

Hi
I'm worried about my sister as she is very anaemic and was put on a higher dose of anaemia tablets around 6 months ago. The tablets make her have very bad stomach pains and watery diorrea. She has lost lots of weight over a 12 month or so period. She has just had more bloods done and her ATG results are abnormal. The doctors are going to repeat the blood tests again in another 6 weeks. We are all so worried as this has been going on so long, what could this mean ?
