This past spring I was totally nuts for ice. I would eat cup after cup of ice, chewing, crunching and annoying everyone around me. I couldn’t help it. I just craved ice and I couldn’t get enough. I didn’t think this was particularly strange. I just thought that I had developed a habit, a bad habit at that. However, when I went in for my yearly check-up, I was surprised to find that my iron levels were very low and craving ice was a symptom of anemia.
