Anaemia

What is Anaemia?

Anaemia is a disease in which the body does not have enough red blood cells or their oxygen-carrying capacity is insufficient to meet the body's needs. Iron deficiencies are the most frequent cause, though it can also be caused by folate, vitamin B12 and vitamin A deficiencies, chronic inflammation, parasitic infections, and inherited disorders.

Diet and Nutrition for Anaemia

It is important to eat a vitamin-rich diet. You should make sure to eat foods that are rich in folate, vitamin B12, vitamin C, and iron. Additionally, you may want to consider taking a multi-vitamin if you are concerned about not getting enough vitamins in your diet.
