Hyperthyroidism isn’t one of the diseases that can cause anemia – those diseases that can are usually inflammatory ones like rheumatoid arthritis. But hyperthyroidism does lead to deficiency of some important vitamins and minerals like iron, copper or vitamin B and than that deficiency causes anemia. Both iron and vitamin B are important parts of red blood cells which carry oxygen through your body. Now that doctor knows you have it you’ll be given a proper supplement that contains either iron, copper or vitamins and that should, in time, make sure that anemia doesn’t come back.

It is quite possible that your anemia is the consequence of your hyperthyroidism.

Like nikols has already mentioned this condition can cause deficiency of some important nutrients such as vitamins and minerals. You can always try to compensate these by taking larger amount of foods which contains these nutrients or by taking supplements to prevent this condition in the future.

Foods which are rich in vitamin B are oysters, clams and mussels.  Shellfish are a great source of vitamin B and if you love them start intake of these foods. Also cheese is a great source of calcium, protein, and Riboflavin which is known as vitamin B2. I hope that this was helpful and that you will resolve your problem with anemia.
