Anyone that can give me advice on my anemia? How can you tell if it's low iron, or hereditary?

In brief: See an MD

There are many reasons for anemia.
They can only be differentiated by doing blood tests. Anemia can be due to low iron or genetic problems but also due to many other types of medical problems. If you have anemia you should see your primary care doctor or a hematologist.
