You should ask the person who told you that you have an anemia score of 4 what that means.

The US NIH have a very good web site that discusses anemia.  It doesn't mention a scoring system.

There is an ICU anemia score but 4 wold not be a valid score.
  None of the lab test used to investigate anemia have a result in that range.

What Is Anemia?

Anemia (uh-NEE-me-eh) is a condition in which your blood has a lower than normal number of red blood cells. This condition also can occur if your red blood cells don’t contain enough hemoglobin (HEE-muh-glow-bin). Hemoglobin is an iron-rich protein that gives blood its red color. This protein helps red blood cells carry oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body.
If you have anemia, your body doesn’t get enough oxygen-rich blood. As a result, you may feel tired and have other symptoms. With severe or long-lasting anemia, the lack of oxygen in the blood can damage the heart, brain, and other organs of the body. Very severe anemia may even cause death.

You need to try to get more iron in your blood via food or vitamins or both,raisens,liver etc. Both have lots of iron, can either be beef liver or pork liver but you need to try to supply your body with more iron....good luck
