    I'm no MD but IMO B-12 for anemics is secondary to presciption medication.

    None, unless your anemia is due to B-12 deficiency.

    iv heard of people not eating enough meat having b-12 deficiencies and they have a similar tired feeling that people that are anemic but they are not anemic...theres no harm in trying it unless ur liver is totally ****ed up.

    There are 2 main consequences of B-12 deficiency:

    1) Megaloblastic anemia
    2) Myelin degeneration which leads to neurological degeneration.
    Therefore, it would be wise to diagnostically check which type of anemia you have...

    But his question was specific as to the effect on anemia.

    Any male with iron deficiency needs to be evaluated as to why. Men should not lose enough iron to get anemic. Either there is an absorption problem, or there is a source of blood loss- usually GI.
