    Anaemia doessn't make people gain weight. Have you been to the doctors? If you are gaining weight but are not over eating, it may be due to a health problem such as hypothyroidism or polycystic ovaries and many other conditions.

    I also started gaining weight when I first started on this anemia journey. I do believe the fatigue and the diziness can lead to weight gain because you really cannot do much. Two years down the line im still trying to lose the weight by eating healthy because even though I am taking supplements I still get very dizzy and faint.

    I don't think being anaemic makes you gain weight....there may be something else going on that is causing that. Best bet is to go to see your Doc, as you can't go on feeling like that. Are you taking anything like an iron supplement? Anything?
