    Agent Orange and Chronic Iron Deficient Anemia

    Hi, are there any Vietnam Veterans that suffer from Chronic Iron Deficient Anemia? I have suffered from this for many years, I average between 4 to 6 blood transfusions (2 units at a time) each year and 2 to 3 iron infusions. I have had every test possible looking for a bleed and they are all negative. I currently have an active Agent Orange claim and am looking for any corroborating information I can find. Thank you!

    Probably not related. Here are the conditions that the VA considers Agent Orange related:
    Here are the 14 health conditions associated with Agent Orange exposure as of 2020:
