I chew ice off and on and buy posicles just to eat something cold and or sweet. I have been diagnosed with a prothrombin gene mutation. I inherited one copy. I am also anemic and need B-12, B6, folic acid, and iron pills now. The gene mutation is a condition that makes it easy for me to get blood clots with inactivity, bumps, bruises, etc. My mom and maternal grandmother were also anemic. My gramma used to get B12 shots at the Dr. office. Taking B12 pills apparently helps my clotting disorder and protects my heart. I had high homocysteine levels on last blood test. I suggest seeing a Hematologist for treatment as I did. My sister is anemic too and has the same clotting disorder. My daughter may have the same condition because when she was in a motorcycle accident she stopped bleeding quickly when her ankle split open from a severe cut. You could see the bone! So see a specialist for treatment with anemia so everything can be checked. There are underlying diseases that need to be checked.
