How to Prevent Anemia

Friday, 10 Jun 2011 03:42 PM

Anemia is a chronic disorder with many potential serious complications. Pregnant women, vegetarians, and people with recent history of severe blood loss are those most susceptible to the disease anemia. There may be some underlying causes like intestinal diseases or worm infestations. It is necessary to diagnose underlying causes and treat them to prevent anemia.

Anemia Diet
A balanced and healthy diet (rich in iron and vitamin C) is the key requirement for preventing as well as curing anemia. Prevent anemia by ensuring adequate intake of iron, vitamins (especially B12 and folic acid), and supplements. The key sources of iron in the diet are animal proteins (especially red meat), egg yolk, spinach, fortified cereals, and beans. In case the diet is not adequate, the individual may need to take some iron supplements to prevent anemia.

The causes of anemia also include unnecessary dieting and over exercising. They can trigger symptoms in someone who is already at risk. Adding vitamin C to the diet improves the bio-availability of iron in the body. Avoid excess consumption of alcohol, tobacco, and caffeine as they interfere with the rate of absorption of iron in the body. Do regular hemoglobin count tests and talk with your doctor about the signs and symptoms to prevent anemia.
