—>What Is Anemia?

 

Anemia is a condition that develops when your blood lacks enough healthy red blood cells or hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is a main part of red blood cells and binds oxygen. If you have too few or abnormal red blood cells, or your hemoglobin is abnormal or low, the cells in your body will not get enough oxygen. Symptoms of anemia — like fatigue — occur because organs aren’t getting what they need to function properly.

 

Anemia is the most common bloodcondition in the U.S. It affects about 5.6% of the people in the U.S. Women, young children, and people with chronic diseases are at increased risk of anemia. 

 

Certain forms of anemia are hereditary and infants may be affected from the time of birth.

 

Women in the childbearing years are particularly susceptible to iron-deficiency anemia because of the blood loss from menstruation and the increased blood supply demands during pregnancy.

 

Older adults also may have a greater risk of developing anemia because of poor diet and other medical conditions.

 

There are many types of anemia. All are very different in their causes and treatments. Iron-deficiency anemia, the most common type, is very treatable with diet changes and iron supplements. Some forms of anemia — like the mild anemia that develops during pregnancy — are even considered normal. However, some types of anemia may present lifelong health problems.

 

—>What Causes Anemia?

 

There are more than 400 types of anemia, which are divided into three groups: 

 

.Anemia caused by blood loss

.Anemia caused by decreased or faulty red blood cell production

.Anemia caused by destruction of red blood cells. 

 

–>Anemia Caused by Blood Loss 

 

Red blood cells can be lost through bleeding, which often can occur slowly over a long period of time, and can go undetected. 

 

–>Anemia Caused by Decreased or Faulty Red Blood Cell Production 

 

With this type of anemia, the body may produce too few blood cells or the blood cells may not function correctly. In either case, anemia can result. Red blood cells may be faulty or decreased due to abnormal red blood cells or a lack of minerals and vitamins needed for red blood cells to work properly. Conditions associated with these causes of anemia include the following: 

 

Sickle cell anemia

 

Iron-deficiency anemia

 

Vitamin deficiency

 

Bone marrow and stem cell problems

 

Other health conditions

You didn’t mention if you are a vegetarian or a non vegetarian. 

Anyway, I will try to be as helpful as possible. 

Under vegetarian options, include more greens like spinach and peas. Use the cauliflower stalks in your food instead of throwing them away. Lentils like kidney beans (rajma) help with improvement of anemia, specially if it’s of the iron deficient type, which is the most commonly encountered form of anemia. Include fruits like apples and pomegranates in your diet. Also include pistachios as they offer a good iron source.

Under non vegetarian options, include lean meat. Like Chicken stew. Liver is a good source of iron, though you might not like it if you’re a vegetarian because of it’s smell. Under general situations, animal source iron is better absorbed, which is why they are prescribed to anemics.

Lastly, you can take iron supplement tablets or syrups. Incase you have been prescribed a syrup, wash your mouth thoroughly after you take it because iron in the syrups can cause staining on teeth. 

Feel better soon.
