How do I tell the difference bwtn anemia and thyroid problems?

I never had anemia till I had my first child, that was 5 years ago. I've been dealing with it ever since and every child I've had after him it has gotten a little worse. I'm thinking its a nutritional defincientcy that my children took and I never replaced it somehow. I want this taken care of and cured. But some friends of mine said that I might have thyroid problems and to get it checked. What is the difference btwn the two and how can I tell? I'm not sure what to do. If anyone has experienced this or knows what to do please help, I have to chase after three children and need my energy. lol I would love to go to a naturopath but just don't have the money to do it.

    You need to get a blood test to determine what you have. There's no sense messing around trying to figure it out on your own. It's great that you've investigated it to a point, but once you realize you will need treatment regardless of which condition you have, you're only delaying it by looking here. Call your doctor and make the appointment. The sooner you get it done the sooner you will be treated and you'll be back to your old self.

    Blood tests are the only way to rule out anemia or iron deficiency, or a thyroid problem. Some of the symptoms are similar.

    Often, a person with anemia needs to continually take supplements and monitor their hemoglobin. Pregnancy is a common cause of anemia.

    It's also possible to have normal hemoglobin levels but be iron deficient. You can try taking a product called Floradix to see if you feel better prior to going for blood work.

    The first thing to do is immediately stop using tap water for any purpose other than washing your floors. The fluoride and chlorine in tap water will exacerbate any problem you might have with either of the things you mentioned. Thyroid issues can be dealt with using a supplement designed for hypothyroidism or with kelp-a sea vegetable that also contains iron. Go ahead and take either one of these two supplements-they are all natural and they wont hurt you even if you don't actually need them for something specific.
