an ice cube on a tongue

When a reader shares a story about a common problem, sometimes it saves someone else’s life. That is what happened when readers wrote about their compulsion to chew on ice, like an ice addiction.

Ice Craving Signaled Serious Anemia:

Q. I read in your column about a person who craved ice. A couple of years ago I had the same habit, and had to have ice cubes constantly. Even on trips, my son would have to stop at restaurants, gas stations or anywhere else to get me large containers of ice cubes.

The doctors I consulted could not tell me why I was craving ice. But I got weaker and weaker. I finally went to my doctor who said I looked like a ghost. He ordered blood tests and found I was anemic. I was taken in a wheelchair from the lab to the hospital and given a transfusion. I’ve had no craving for ice since that time. Perhaps your reader should have a blood test.

A. Thanks for sharing your story. When people develop unusual cravings they should always be tested for anemia or zinc deficiency. We have heard of other cases where replenishing iron or zinc vanquishes the compulsion to eat ice.

Ice Addiction as a Symptom of Colon Cancer:

Sometimes a craving for something that is not food (doctors call this “pica”) can indicate an even more serious medical problem. We received this message four years ago:

“In 2001, I had a very strong urge to chew on ice. After reading in your column that this could be a sign of anemia, I told my doctor about it.

“The blood work showed anemia and I was advised to get a colonoscopy. This test showed cancer in the colon.

“I had surgery and received six months of chemo. The operation removed 10 inches of my colon. Testing the lymph nodes showed the cancer had spread to three out of 15 tested.

“I wouldn’t have mentioned the craving for ice cubes had I not read about it in your column. I thank you for that timely article. I have been cancer free for these past seven years.”

Pre-Surgery Blood Test Explained Ice Addiction:

Another person reported this experience:

“I also used to crave crushed ice, eating it daily, summer and winter, many pounds of it on a weekly basis, I was scheduled for surgery. During the testing prior to surgery, they discovered that my blood count was so low that I needed a transfusion before I could have the surgery.

“I checked into the hospital and ate crushed ice all during the first day. That night I was given a blood transfusion and immediately I stopped craving ice. I have not eaten it since, and that was more than 20 years ago.”

Frequent blood donors may develop anemia as a consequence. A recent study found that as iron status deteriorated, pica symptoms increased (Chansky et al, Transfusion, April 2017). Conversely, treating the iron deficiency made pica disappear.

People Craving Cornstarch:

Many people also report cornstarch cravings. You will find dozens of amazing stories by going to this link. Here is just one example:

“I never thought that eating cornstarch was a problem until I started eating whole boxes myself within just 2 or 3 days. Originally, I began eating it at 16 when I was pregnant with my first child. Family members would also eat it often, which made it hard for me to stop.

“I’m 23 years old, about to be 24, and I feel like this has become an issue and I need help. My weight is up and down and I know my iron is low. My mate doesn’t like it; he thinks I should be able to stop easily. I find myself lying to my family about quitting. I don’t have a favorite brand, any cornstarch will do just to take the craving away.

“Often I will eat ice to take the place of starch, but lately I’ve been eating both together. I dip my fingers or pour mounds in my hands and lick it. Sometimes I’ve even eaten it through a straw. I’ve tried chalk as a replacement but it’s not as good at the starch. Help me please and thank you.”

Raw Rice Cravings:

Even though we said pica is a craving for something that is not food, sometimes food cravings qualify as well. Obviously, cornstarch is a food even though normally we don’t eat it unless it has been cooked. The same holds true for rice. Clinicians in Birmingham, AL, reported two cases of women eating quantities of raw Basmati rice (Barton et al, Case Reports in Medicine, online Jan. 4, 2016). Both women were severely anemic, and correcting the anemia extinguished the rice craving.

If you know anyone with an ice addiction or  cravings for ice, or cornstarch or even foods like carrots, please encourage that person to visit our website, read these stories and then be checked for an iron or zinc deficiency.

    Has anyone ever gotten frostbite on your tongue from eating ice!?


    This is so true. I had the craving for ice about 2 years u til finally my doctor sent me to the hospital after check my labs from blood test. I had an ulcer I my small intestine and it was bleeding. Had surgery and 3 transfusions. Never again have the need for ice.

    I can’t help but notice that 100% of the commenters are female. There are definitely some with low blood cell counts due to menstruation, but I would have expected to see equal counts of men and women due to occult colon cancer–and there’s not.

  4. Carol Sidofsky

    It’s called “pagophagia”, and yes, iron deficiency anemia can be the cause of the “ice-eating/chewing” habit/compulsion. Hopefully, those who are addicted to ice-eating/chewing, can overcome their addiction/habit, IF THEY WANT TO, by bringing their iron levels back up to normal (eat iron-rich foods).

    Since it has become a compulsion, some people like this addiction, and may need psychological help/counseling, to get to where they want to overcome this ice-eating habit/addiction/compulsion.

  5. Rob

    My wife developed an ice craving as well. She crunched ice relentlessly whenever we ate out and often at home. As it turned out, she was seriously anemic and osteoporotic as well. After almost four years of iron pills and infusions, a gut biopsy revealed celiac disease. This was in the days before diagnostic blood tests and general awareness of gluten intolerance.

    Any strong change in food or drink preferences or eating behavior should be carefully checked out. You may need to see more than one physician, if your GP cannot resolve the issue.

    • Cheryl

      My tongue has deep fissures and looks dark red, and my tongue hurts. Has anyone had these symptoms? I’m afraid to let any doctors look at it, because they would tell me to stop chewing ice? I chew ice constantly.

  6. paula

    Some 25 years ago I began to crave ice cubes – even in the cold of Wisc. winter and hard candy, neither of which was typical for me. Gradually that waned until I noticed I no longer had the cravings. It was later that it became obvious that the cravings arose when I started menopause and stopped when it was gone. I had been told I was anemic during a routine wellness check, but did not experience symptoms from that. The body is interesting!

  7. Dawn

    I have dentures due to gum disease habitual poor dental care when I was young. I don’t worry about ice causing harm to my teeth (my upper dentures are now about 22 years old, my lowers are about 7 years old).

    I have been chewing ice pretty consistently since my second pregnancy (that child will be 20 years old in two months). I take a daily multivitamin that includes iron (yes, I know certain form are only absorbed a t a rate of about 3%). I am going to be checked out next week just to be sure I’m not deficient in some way.

    Other than that, I do not believe my ice chewing habit is harmful to me or anyone else. I am not to thrilled to drink plain water, but water obtained from freshly melted ice is delicious. I have been making it a point lately to fill my cup with ice, and then fill it with water. I then drink the water, and afterwards I chew my ice. I do know my habit can be irritating to some people, so try to refrain when I’m in public, or where it can be overheard by people other than my close family and friends. Otherwise, those close to me are used to it, and I really don’t see what the harm is.

  8. Sarah

    I’m getting worried.
    I’m 17 and I’ve been hospitalised more than once this year for various reasons. I’ve been chewing on ice for a while now and am severely anemic. My whole body is tense and I get irregular periods as in it would go on for more than a week.

    Right now has been the longest that my period has gone on for (3 weeks) and counting. I feel fatigued all the time and get constant headaches. Every time I’m home from school, I’m eating ice. My feet have water retention, I don’t believe that there is enough blood circulation there. My legs and arms go numb and tingly. I don’t really know what to do, I feel like I do need a blood transfusion.

    The swelling in my leg is irregular, if I’m sitting for quite a while then it swells but if I walk for a while, it gets better a little.

  9. Geraldine Schaumburg

    You all might not need blood transfusions after you get your first one and are diagnosed anemic! When my ferriton levels and hgb levels go down and I start craving ice, ask you doc to give you iron sucrose by i.v. I eat only iron rich foods and take twice the iron supplements and my body does not absorb them and they can cause stomach aches, nausea and constipation. Ask for iron sucrose by i.v. its easy, takes 45 minutes and BAM! The very next day the ice craving disappear. It’s that immediate. Iron by mouth and iron foods dont help. You body absorbs better with iron sucrose. Good luck!

  10. Geraldine Schaumburg

    I ate ice 24/7 until all my teeth were chipped. I also wanted to eat toothpaste. Instead I substituted altoid breath minds and ate two tins a day. Finally I lost conscious and was given blood transfusions. My body does not create rbc’s properly. I have me blood drawn and when ferriton levels are low I get iron sucrose by iv. Intravenous injections.

  11. Margaret

    I was surprised to read about the lady with ice cravings who turned out to be anemic from a colon cancer. I had ice cravings, and thought nothing of it. However, I became severely anemic, so much so that I thought I was having a heart attack.

    My Dr checked and I was so anemic he ordered a colonoscopy after a transfusion. I was very lucky my colon cancer was found early enough to be removed without further treatment. I now have yearly colonoscopy. So far so good. This is a strange coincidence.

    • April

      Just curious to you and the other person who commented that they found other conditions (colon in particular) in addition to their anemia. I was anemic during both of my pregnancies, and it fluctuated at other times. I crave crushed ice and eat it throughout the day.

      I can do without it but I really like it. I also like dark toasted crackers and bread. I have some other things going on with my bowel habits and was just wondering were there any other symptoms you guys can look back on and remember having besides low iron? My last count was an 8

      • April

        PS I also feel (and look) bloated at times, some headaches, and falling out especially when i get up too quick (not unconscious) a few times. One time I tried to hold on to a door but my body shook and I couldn’t hold on. After my tubes were tied, my periods and bowel habits changed.

        I have had a D.N.C. to see if that would help my iron levels because my periods were heavy. They are not as heavy and don’t last as long but still not back to the way they were before my tubal ligation.

    I am a ice eater and have been for 20 plus years, it’s has gotten worse, I eat about 5 to 7 lbs, I don’t want water or tea with my ice, I have a ice bucket beside as I write. I have eaten so much that my mouth and tongue feels like they are raw/blisted, my food has no favor, any juices I drink taste nasty. I wake up eating in and I go to be eating ice. I have had nose bleeds that last more then 10 hours, and I would throw up blood clots from the nose bleeds, on my and so weak I can almost pass out, but I still chew my ice.

    • Regina Swafford


    • Debi

      I’m sure you’ve been told this, and I’m not a fan of doctors, but you should see one. Ice cravings get more severe as anemia gets worse. On ice eating blogs most of them talk about drs saying they have no blood, zero iron, 8 or below in iron count – 12 is minimum a person can have. The nose bleeds and other symptoms sound dangerous.

      • Janice

        I’ve had 3 transfusions. I eat a 10 lb bag of sonic everyday. Still, after the blood transfusion, I end up being a -3. That’s very much below what the less percentage someone should be.

        I wake up and go to bed eating ice. I finish a cup and run to get more out of the bag. It’s just what I need to be relaxed calm chill….. If I dont have it, I’m super anxious. Ahhh… It’s bad

    Trinidad and Tobago

    I crave ice ALL the time……I must eat it morning noon and night, it makes me feel really good. I got tested and do not have anemia or iron deficiency or so but was really concerned cause it seems like an addiction, I really cannot stop. I consulted a doctor who told me it is probably a digestive problem, I haven’t gone to check it out as yet. I would really like to stop though cause my stomach is huge and I’m not that big and people say it’s because of the ice. idk what to do…..for now, gotta eat ice.

  14. crystal

    I have an ice addiction also after having my 3 babies. I eat half a 10lb bag each day, to the point that my teeth start hurting. When they stop hurting I will eat ice again. It’s to the point where my arm muscles sting, and I wonder if it’s from my ice chewing.

    • Terry Graedon

      Do ask your doctor to test you for iron deficiency anemia or for zinc deficiency. Your ice craving could be a signal you are missing important nutrients.

    • Terry Graedon

      Ask your doctor to check for anemia. If you are low in iron and can correct that, you may find the craving disappears.

  15. Mama De

    I also had a very unusual craving for chewing ice! I couldn’t even hardly drink anything that I wouldn’t chew all the ice before drinking the liquid. I finally got to the point of not even being able to walk to the mailbox without rest.
    I saw my family practice with the great push of my family. Within a matter of 3 hours I was admitted to the hospital and having a blood transfusion. My hemoglobin was at an extremely low level of 4.0.
    Take my advice listen to your own body and if you feel something I’d wrong, don’t wait like I did. My doctor said it was just a matter of hours and I would have just cardiac arrested and died.

  16. MRenee

    I eat ice non stop.
    I have a preference for my ice
    though. My cubes have to be perfectly white. The worse Christmas gift my husband gave me Christmas 2015 was my own ice making machine. He said he got tired of going to the store buying bags of ice. I can eat 10 pounds of ice within 2 days.
    I prefer ice over anything.
    If I don’t eat it or try to go one day without it I’m agitated and miserable. Yes I have an iron deficiency and yes I take iron tablets every now and again and I’ve even lost teeth because of my ice chewing compulsion or addiction. I started eating ice when I was 13 years old. Once my doctor’s office called me and told me to report to the nearest hospital because my blood count was low. I responded with it “I can’t,
    I’m in Walt Disney World right now.” The Nurse asked if I felt weak I’m like yeah but my husband rented me a scooter. Once I had to go to the hospital because I was too weak to drive home and my nose was bleeding while I was at work. The emergency room doctor was like he’s never seen a blood count this low before and was amazed I was able to still walk in on my own. He even joked about if I were to get shot or even stabbed I would bleed out in seconds because I had only 6 pints of blood in my body. I was tested for sickle cell anemia, but I don’t have it. I do have lupus arthritis though. I can’t give up my ice. I’m 43 years old and I’m trying to eat foods enriched in iron and taking my iron supplements. But once my ice start tasting like metal and my food begin tasting like metal I stop taking the iron. I don’t know what else to do. I’m currently looking for another Primary Care Physician because my husband and my neurologist office (also schizophrenic and suffer from epilepsy) says my current Doctor who I have been going to for over 20 years is like a doctor do nothing.
    At first he actually had me listed as a hypochondriac. But when my husband lost his job and his insurance we had no choice to but to visit the clinic. I was embarrassed and ashamed about that but eventually the clinic Doctors cared way more I mean way more about me. All the bloodwork and X-rays revealed much more wrong. I have an enlarged heart, the stupid lupus, the embarrassing epilepsy and a bone in my lower back know as the L7 that’s slowly deteriorating. I’m now on disability and I take so much medicine I feel bad for my liver. I talk a heck of a lot and share a lot about myself when given the chance. I don’t think I’ll ever give up my compulsion to eat ice when with a blood transfusion which I’m terrified of receiving. My son and I have the same blood type so he began donating blood just because of me. Let me end my ramble now. Off to check my ice machine. If you read my ramble, I thank you.

    I have been trying to figure out what and why I am craving ICE so much… I am anemic and I am taking iron pills… I guess they are not working very well.. I can sit and eat cups of the crunch ICE… I have noticed that my stomach is nauseated when I try to eat real food sometimes. I am also a gastric bypass patient.

    • Michelle

      I’m also a gastric bypass patient and an ice addict this only started this year in May after I had two knee replacements and a blood transfusion I eat
      5 kg of ice a day I have low iron but take iron tablets I’m not slowing down on the ice just yet my pain management doctor googled it and it’s a condition called pica I get agitated and anxious if I run out of ice when I’m out I take a cup with me full until I get home most of my friends no and they keep ice at there place for when I come to visit I really need to get off it but I suppose it’s better than being addicted to lollies and bad things my doctors are not concerned I get my blood checked regularly.

  18. Ruby

    well its been a while that I have been eating ice for a long time and well. I have a a really big addiction and I have a feeling that it might be anemia and well I don’t know if that might cause like tired ness and well in school I would always feel tired and well couldn’t be able to concentrate in class. Also I would have like short term memory loss I haven’t gone with my doctor yet but I’m sure that it might be anemia.

  19. Mia M.

    I am one who suffers with Pica also. I love the ice that’s inside of a deep freezer. But my main craving is eating clay dirt. I love the red, grey, brown and the white kaolin clay dirt they all taste like the smell of rain. I can eat clay dirt all day and if I run out of the clays I’ll eat plant dirt.

  20. Vicki

    For about 1 1/2 years I’ve had a dry mouth, and I suck on ice cubes constantly. Now my tongue burns, as if I burned my mouth on hot food, food doesn’t taste right, and I have a very bitter taste in my mouth as well as my mouth being so dry it’s horrible! I don’t know if I ruined my tongue, or if it is BMS (Burning Mouth Syndrome), which there is really not a lot of studies or things you can do for it. It might or might not go away in time. In the meantime, it’s horrible symptoms 24/7. Help!!! Any suggestions?

    I’ve been eating ice for about 9 months already I crAve it all the time and I do not feel weak at all. I probably chew ice 8 glasses a day but with water in it. I think it’s just a bad habbit.I went to a doctor for months ago and everything came out just fine no anemia..maybe it’s just a craving thing I’m going through..what do u talk think. I love the feeling of chewing crunching ice….can’t stop..

  22. Nicole

    I too am an ice eater and have been for many, many years. I am now 31 years of age and I still have to have my crushed ice. Matter of fact, I am eating crushed ice now while I am commenting on this post.

    When I first began to eat ice I would sneak into the kitchen and wait until the ice trays got really, really cold where it was kinda slushy and I would suck all of the cold water out of it and hurry up and refill it again and put it back in the freezer. I also ate all types of ice but now I prefer to eat crushed/shaved ice and can go through a 10 lb bag of ice in two days.

    I never knew that this was an issue or that it meant an underlying medical condition existed. Not only am I anemic but I’m considered to have iron deficiency anemia. I’ve had irregular cycles since I started my period at the tender age of nine and if I did not have birth control/hormones to regulate my cycle, I would stay on my period for months at a time. I had my first blood transfusion January of 2012 because I could not get my period to stop and was hospitalized because my blood count was very low, I was VERY FATIGUED and weak and I was having difficultly breathing.

    It was so frustrating because people around me just thought I was being lazy but they lacked the understanding that this affected me not only physically but mentally and emotionally as well. The doctor’s explained that a normal hemoglobin for a woman as my self suppose to be 12 and mine was right under 7 and the doctor went further to explain after I exposed my ice eating habit and I was told that when their is a deficiency within the body that people may crave things that have no nutritional value such as chalk, clay, dirt, ICE, cornstarch etc. and this is considered Pica.

    After I received the transfusion for 2 units, I felt so alive and energetic and my cravings for ice just disappeared. I know that I need to probably go back to the doctor again and get checked because I have picked up that strong habit of eating ice yet once again and I know that it is an indicator to get checked. It is difficult sometimes for me to even realize that it is not normal to eat ice the way that I do and that it could be an issue because I’ve been doing this for so long now and I am addicted to eating it. It gives me a certain comfort but I’ve eating so much in one sitting before that it would hurt my teeth and gums and make the roof of my mouth feel like it’s freezer burnt (That is the only way I know how to describe the sensation).

    I strongly suggest to anyone who has such strong cravings and is dependent on ice, cornstarch etc. to make an appointment and get your blood checked along with an examination to be sure that there is no underlying medical issues that could be causing your Pica.

      Omg my friend has the same thing. Holy Guacamole maybe you guys can get together and chew ice!!!

  23. Briana milito

    I was craving ice, and I could eat ten large glasses a day. It had to be crushed, and I thought maybe my iron was low but, no, instead I found out I had breast cancer. Crazy, right ??? I had cancer surgery, and then I stopped craving ice. I still like it but I was like a drug addict about the ice. No matter where I was or even out of town I had to find my crushed ice supplier.

  24. Andrea

    I have a problem with this as well and my doctor said it is because I’m anemic and he prescribed prescription iron, Ferrex 150 Forte. Insurance does not cover it but it’s pretty inexpensive. Hoping this goes away soon…I’m wasting time at work getting up going to get ice so many times a day.

    • bunny

      There are a bunch of over the counter iron supplements that are pretty cheap. Maybe talk to your doctor about switching and trying a non-prescription one? Google “Gentle Iron”, it is the supplement I use. My whole life I always tested slightly anemic and I always craved/chewed ice my whole life. Now I take 1 pill of the Gentle Iron each day after I eat in the morning and it gives me energy & I definitely don’t eat ice anymore. Nor do I want to sleep all day long, which has resulted in about a 20 lb weight loss compared to before when I was too tired to exercise ever and I am in a much better mood also bc I am not tired all the time.

    Hi I’m 16 years old and I have a severe addiction with ice too. I cannot stop myself from eating / chewing ice cubes. Without thinking most of the time I go to the freezer and start eating ice-cubes. I’ve tried to stop many times. My family thinks I’m just pretending that I cannot stop. I got my blood tested and I’m anemic. I started eating ice when I was 11 and now I just cannot stop it.

  26. Michelle

    Hi My name is Michelle. I started craving ice about two months ago and now I can’t stop. I tell myself that it’s because of the heat but I go crazy over it even when it’s not hot. I stop eating normal food and I feel sick sometimes after I eat a tray of ice. I get really gases and the lower part of my belly tend to hurt. I also tend to have diarrhea at least once or twice a day. Can someone please tell me why all of this is happen. Also am 18 years old.

      Have your doctor test for an iron or zinc deficiency. One of these is often the source of an unusual craving like yours, and correcting the deficiency makes the craving go away.

    When I was a teenager, my mom for months, was telling us that she felt she was getting weaker, and weaker.

    One day she asked us to take her to the hospital, that her condition was getting worse.

    In the hospital she began a number of tests. They found that her blood count, either white or red cells (I do not remember) was extremely low. Looking for the reason was their agenda. Test continued, with numerous doctors coming in, and out trying to locate a cause of her weakness.

    One day when I was sitting there visiting her, another doctor came in, with his chart. My mom was chewing from a large container of ice… As he was examining her, she chewed away. He started asking questions, and then the conversation turned to her chewing on the ice. Non medical questions, just small talk type of questions. She told the doctor she was an ice eater. He asks her for how long. For about 5 years or so, she told him.

    It looked like a light bulb went off in his head.

    Mrs. Moore, I want you to stop right now eating ice, and pulled the cup outa her hand.

    Later that evening, signs went up saying NO ICE, for this patient.

    As days past, she began getting her strength back, and within 2 weeks she was out of the hospital, and had fully recovered.

    Many years of ice eating was slowly but surely killing her.

  28. Unknown

    I also have a problem with excessive ice-chewing. I buy from 2-3 10 lb bags a week I find it frustrating that I keep spending my money on things that I know are ruining my teeth. I’ve tried going a day without any ice and I usually give up after a couple of hours. Even on road trips (or even just on an outing,) I will go to McDonald’s for a Sweet Tea with EXTRA ice.

      I too had an addiction to ice a couple years back. I consumed so much that I had to take and iron deficiency supplement. After I finished my whole bottle, I didn’t eat ice for a while. Possibly for 3 years. Then I started eating it again after I moved. I haven’t been to my doctor yet, but I know I have low iron again. I can probably eat up to 3Ibs a day or higher. I can’t go more than a couple of hours without having ice. I try to stop but I always go to the freezer, without thinking about what I’m doing, and overflow my large cup full of ice. I look pale from a distance, I randomly get cold chills, and I have dark bags under my eyes. My mom knows that I need to stop but I don’t know when. I came up with an idea, that on my birthday, (approximately 23 days away) I will stop eating ice. Hopefully the bags under my eyes, idea of eating it will go away for a long time. If the addiction comes back, I will go to my doctor and get my iron deficiency supplement again. I’m glad I can relate to others about this problem/situation.

        I have a 22 year old daughter that constantly goes into the top of the refrigerator freezer and licks on the packages of the food and takes her fingers and licks off the walls of the freezer. I am frustrated about that. What can be done about that? Please help us.

    I also have a ice addiction that started a month ago , I was told I crave ice because of my anemia. But after reading all the comments I will definitely be consulting my physician again.

      I too have an addiction to eating ice, I’m away from home and it gets worse, I crave like 10- 14 water bottles per day, I eat ice if I’m working, thinking or after dinner, I love the feeling after chewing then swallowing it, I know it’s and addiction but it’s hard to not eat it. As after reading comments I’m feeling kind of strange, as I also know that I’m inemic, I use a Suppliment called “Lydia Pinkham” plus taking iron sometimes, (not on a daily basis) but I also realize the change in my monthly periods, smell and color, the feelings I have in the right side of my jaw, at times feels numbing even after eating it, 2-3 hours. I know I need help, I do not feel lazy, I just hate being in the sun as I get the chill sometimes.
      I will definitely be consulting my physician soon as I get home.this addiction sounds detrimental to my health.
