Anemia: Definitely your diet is low in iron and definitely should be reinforced. The usual dose is 325 MG per day but there is nothing wrong with tripling that for now until you have the levels restored. There are also other remedies but this is one of the safest routes to go. I definitely hope that it solves the problem.
