Possible medical based reasons for ice chewing.

Anemics: how low of a blood count do you have?

Postby crunchcrunchcrunch » Mon Mar 20, 2006 2:55 pm

After chewing ice excessively for about half a year, and driving my husband crazy, I went to the doctor and had my blood checked for anemia. The doctor determined that I was indeed anemic. My hemoglobin level is 7.4. He said a low-normal level is about 11. Anyone know anything else about this scale, or how their own level, regarding anemia?

Yep, I went to the doc and my hemoglobin was 7.8 and the doc put me on meds and told me to stay home from work and rest. It is VERY dangerous to have levels that low. If the meds she gave me don't do the trick, the next step is a transfusion. Hope all is well with you.

My hemoglobin level is 7. something as well. My doctor put me on iron I'm a spammer who can't get a job. Also, our product sucsk - don't buy from us. 3 times a day. I don't take them like i should because they make me feel worst. But I do take them when I start feeling tired or my body isn't right...What kind do you take? and she said if the meds doesn't work for me the next thing is a transfusion as well. but she said something like I would have to come in every 3 months for this....

So since being on the meds do you still eat ice? less or more?

I just got out of the hospital, I had a hemoglobin count of 6.2.. I had to have a blood transfusion..NO FUN!!!

I also eat ice...Or i did till now........I truly believe ICE was the cause of my anemia.. Also I had restless legs syndrome ( i dont have that now after my blood transfusion...... My levels now is still quite low ( 8.2) but gradually on the rise....I am on 625 mgs of iron a day....... That will be like that for a month ..I worry about that too because of the chance of liver damage.........I have to have blood drawn every two weeks till i am out of danger........ They said i could of died ........MAinly my heart was working overtime...I did feel it beating out of my chest b4 i went to hospital... I guess i am lucky to be here....All i want to say is if you are addicted like i was....try to stop b4 its 2 late.....Id say most of you here are Anemics............Please see your doctor.........Believe me having blood transfusions and everything else i had to deal with ..Ice is not worth it......Its gonna be hard to give up on the ice.............But if u want to be healthy , then i suggest u do.. Good luck all...and God bless you

ice depleting your iron

Postby talli » Sun Jun 03, 2007 5:48 pm

Ok I will say it again. How can Ice deplete your iron? I thought that you became interested in ice when you were already anemic? I didnt have iron problems until I started a weight loss program and would chew ice to help. Then find out I am anemic. I really want to know the medical reason how ice can work against you. Any ideas? :?

After a pretty difficult delivery I had to have 2 blood tranfusions and that still left me with a 5. something iron level. I was anemic all throughout my pregnancy but didn't take my iron I'm a spammer who can't get a job. Also, our product sucsk - don't buy from us. because they caused constipation

5.3 was my lowest. Caused by infection in the bone marrow. I am in the 9's now and falling and the cravings are getting out of control.
