Type of anemia: Before taking any medication or dietary supplements it is very important to know the exact type of anemia and its cause. Iron deficiency is one of the main causes but there are others: vitamin b12/folate deficiency, chronic disease, genetic conditions, certain medications, toxins, etc. Consulting a hematologist is recommended.
