    Many people with thyroid conditions are anemic, either iron deficient or B12 (pernicious anemia).

    On the other hand people taking thyroid medication because of their hypothyroidism cannot tolerate it unless their anemia resolves. So it’s all tied in together if that makes sense?

    Being hypothyroid can cause one to be anemic due to inadequate stimulation of red blood cell development in the bone marrow. Levothyroxine will resolve the problem.
