Causes of Anemia

There are different types of anemia from mild to severe. Anemia is a deficiency in the blood, either in amounts or in quality of the blood.

Treat Anemia

If you notice any causes or symptoms of anemia, contact your doctor to get treated and diagnosed for anemia. Blood loss is the most common cause of anemia, and can lead to severe anemia if left untreated. Your doctor will need blood test from you, to know if you are anemic or not; and to know if the anemia is mild or severe. Once your doctor has diagnosed you for anemia, you many need to take iron supplements (Ferrous Sulfate). This medication will assist you in managing the anemia symptoms, so that they don't get worse. Anemia medication helps to rebuild the red blood cells (hemoglobin/erythrocytes). Also when taking iron supplements you will need huge amounts of vitamin C intake, it helps the iron supplement absorb better in your blood system.

Manage Anemia

Being anemic isn't fun, but we can manage and treat anemia with the right information. Mild anemia is easier to treat than severe anemia. But both can be better managed once the symptoms are decreased. Drinking 100% orange juice, 100% apple juice, or any other 100% natural juice with an iron vitamin, will help the iron absorb better into the blood quicker.

How to Prevent Anemia

Many fruits and vegetables contain vitamin C; 100% fruit and vegetable drinks contain high levels of vitamin C as well. And drinking 32-64 ounces of water will also assist with the absorption of the iron supplement.

The foods that are high in iron

  • Whole wheat bread

  • Spinach

  • Liver

  • Kidney beans and Navy beans

  • Dark leafy greens

  • Egg yolk

  • Dried raisins and prunes

  • Cereals (some cereals are high in iron)
