Eat a healthy diet: What is your hemoglobin level? If hemoglobin is normal and ferritin is normal, there may not be anything to worry about. Eat a healthy diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils, and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise 30 minute/day for about 5 days/wk.
