What we all know is that when a person is suffering from anemia there is a deficiency of red blood cells or hemoglobin.

The normal levels of hemoglobin are different for men and women. For mean the normal levels are 13.5 gram/100 ml while for women it is around 12.0 gram/100 ml.

There are many symptoms associated with anemia and it could range from fatigued to easily bruising to cold hands and feet, quite easily.iron-rich-meal-plan-for-anemia

Patients suffering from anemia could also look pale and they could complain shortness of breath.

There also could be additional symptoms like loss of hair, feeling listless or being in a state of malaise and developing heart problems or worsening of heart problems if somebody already has it.

Which is why, it is important to diagnose the problem and go in for the right treatment as early as possible.

Some doctors will put you on ferrous sulfate first. If that doesn’t work, then they might try a more aggressive approach with a type of hormone shot called Erythropoietin that helps you make red blood cells.

Spinach: Even if you only have liver and a spinach salad, you are on your way to feeling better and kicking this anemia in the butt. Why? Because spinach is high in the key nutrients you need: iron, folate and protein.

Mushrooms: A lot of people don’t know that mushrooms are another great source of iron. It’s easy to absorb by your digestive system and will also boost your immune system.

Tomatoes: Tomatoes are also iron rich. A lot of people eat tomatoes because of it anti-aging abilities and to prevent cancer.

Prepare: Along side your liver, you will also have a spinach salad.

Spinach topped with mushrooms, tomatoes and eggs. Vinegarette dressing. You can add a bit of cheese if you would like. Feta cheese would be yummy.

Bread: If you need bread on the side, then try french bread as it contains folate and iron.
