You don't indicate what HIV meds you are taking, and whether your hemoglobin was low before starting HIV meds. The first thing that has to be done is determine why your hemoglobin level is low. There are several possibilities with iron deficiency being one. Thus, this may not be an iron problem, so it is important to find the cause first. Why you can't eat anything could also have many reasons, but it is unlikely the low hemoglobin is the cause.
