How can chewing ice deplete your iron?

Postby talli » Mon Apr 30, 2007 5:32 pm

:roll: Hey everyone. My mother had been anemic most of my adult years, she drove us all crazy chewing ice. I went on a big weight loss program recently and chose to crunch on ice when I was hungry.(it was not craved) Well guess what ? the doctor told me I was anemic. Is it because of my weight loss or could chewing ice have something to do with it? I can't imagine that chewing ice would deplete you of your iron. If anyone knows how this could medically happen I would appreciate feedback otherwise I am on a course of guessing what it could be. Maybe something lacking in my new eating pattern. I finally get my self on the right track to be healthy and everything I am doing is working against me. I know you crave weird things when anemic like ice(Pica) but again how could it deplete you of your iron.
SOME ONE HELP PLEASE.

if you eating ice made from tap water it can cause your thyroid to be out of balance, which can be a problem with iron.

it is true.

again, spring water only.

I thought I was the only one who did this. I bring a gallon ziploc bag to work also but I am out by 2:00. I probably eat ice on average of 10 hours a day. My daughter get furious at me because of the noise
