Unexplained mild anemia with hgb ranging from 12.5 to 13.6., benign polyps removed, benign stomach polyps + mild weakness. What would be the cause?

In other words it is a disease of the behavior.....so you have to change your behavior in terms of eating less and moving /exercise more and stick to it daily. ...Read more
