I have been Anemic for several years and been getting iron infusions to control it, no cause has been found despite numerous tests. It is most likely related to malabsorption and bleeding related to IBS. I also get monthly B12 shots since that is low too. I was diagnosed with Type II about 5 months ago and have been on Metformin since, in the same amount as you. I haven't seen any decrease in my iron due to it so it's seems unlikely that could be the cause. Hopefully your doctor will have you go for tests to see if you have a hidden bleeding issue or some other cause.
