If you are like me, you don't not even think about Anemia unless you have it. Well, I never thought about it, but now I have it. In fact, I had it for years before anyone started giving me iron pills. So I assumed that I did not need them. Now I am taking them three times a day, along with Folic Aid, once a day. Do you have anemia and if so, are you treating it? My sister has had it for years also, but I can not understand why she will not take iron pills. Check out this article and tell me what you think. http://www.everydayhealth.com/publicsite/ShowArticle.aspx?IsP=news/616/news616465.xml&cen=News

well i am kind of a hypochondriac. i've had myself tested for anemia and am hapy to report that i don't have it. i am a regular blood donor and one of the good things about it is i get my blood tested before donation. so i can confirm i don't have anemia. actually mild anemia can be helped if you take the correct kind of food. green leafy vegetables are good. liver of animals are also good but not many people like it as much as i do. get yourself a list of iron-rich food and try to include them in your diet. you'll be amazed at how much improvement you'll get. cheers and stay healthy :D

guess i'm really lucky to be living where i am living. i eat outside almost every meal. but i manage to get a balanced diet as there are many choices available. there's this style of eating - the steamboat. it's basically a pot of soup and you just dip whatever you want to eat into the soup to get it cooked. this is a really healthy and tasty way of eating. i usually get my dose of iron from this meal. i eat lots of liver and cockles whenever i eat steamboat. take care and hopefully your sister will include more green leafy vegetables into her diets.

I did have anemia before, about 15 years ago. I was also very skinny and I remember having very little appetite that I always finish last during mealtime. By the time I was 23, I started taking Squalene capsules which my uncle recommended to me and it did help a lot. My friends were surprised that I no longer looked so skinny and pale as before. I took iron pills prior to that and it didn't work well for me.

There are many reason for anemia. Folic acid and vitamin B complex is needed to absorb iron. You have to include green leafy vegetables, olive oil, nuts, guava fruits, bitter guard, sea foods, beans, chicken, cereals etc in your diet.
