What type of anemia?: Mild iron deficiency anemia is quite common in you females because of losing iron on a monthly basis. Otc iron supplements are quite cheap. Avoid carbonated beverages as this reduces iron absorption signifincantly other types of anemia are more complicated and treatment depends on specific type.. So, you should find which type you have..Check with your doc.
