Diet Plan for Patients of Anemia

Anaemia is a condition that develops when our body does not receive enough oxygen to fulfill its needs. The lack of oxygen occurs due to deficiency of red blood cells or low levels of hemoglobin pigment that binds with oxygen.

The deficiency of red blood cells could be due to low count of RBC's due to destruction or due to abnormality in the RBC structure.

Tips to increase iron absorption in the body:

  • Refraining from eating foods rich in calcium or phytates with those rich in iron.
  • Eating iron-rich foods alongside those rich in vitamin C.
  • Cooking foods for shorter periods.
  • Cooking food in Iron vessels.
