Transcript

In general, it is important to adhere to a balanced diet. For iron deficiency anemia, incorporate iron rich foods such as beef, other red meat, dark green leafy vegetables, dried fruit, iron fortified cereals and legumes. Vitamin C enhances the absorption of iron in your body. Foods high in calcium may decrease iron absorption. For vitamin deficiency anemia, fruits, dark green leafy vegetables, nuts and grains are rich in folic acid. Animal products and fortified cereals are rich in vitamin B12. And it's also important to avoid excess alcohol intake as it leads to nutritional deficiency from bleeding from the GI tract, chronic inflammation or hemolysis, which is the destruction of red blood cells.
