Could you provide me with anemia daily diet plan?

Could you provide me with anemia daily diet plan?

No, we can't: Please forgive my frankness. Unless we know the cause of your anemia (there are hundreds), we can't address appropriate treatment. Anyone pretending to do so is doing you a disservice. And if you are iron deficient, the key is to identify the cause. Are you losing blood from a hidden cancer? "Healthy" diets promoted on the internet can make you anemic. Insist your physician explain your anemia. ...Read more

Dr .Is dieting safe if one has anemia due to fibroids bleeding ? I'm trying to loose weight that i've gained , i suspect estrogen to be the cause.

Dr .Is dieting  safe  if one has anemia due to fibroids bleeding ? I'm trying to loose weight that  i've gained , i suspect estrogen to be the cause.

Excess estrogen?: Despite health issues, a change in diet that reduces starch, sugars, and excess fatty foods should not cause harm. I hope you are getting medical help for your fibroids. If they are causing anemia, then something should be done about them. Ask your doc to test your Progesterone level and if it's low take Progesterone (not medroxyprogesterone) 100 mg @ bedtime day 12-25 of your cycle. ...Read more

I had unexplained anemia in 2009, I understand this is unusual for a male, they put it down to my diet, can that simply be the reason? Im worried stil

It's possible: When a man over age 50 develops iron-deficiency anemia, doctors are trained to think about colon cancer, which can cause silent blood loss. But if your anemia went away with a change in your diet, it was probably due to your diet! lack of folate (folic acid) from leafy green vegetables, or lack of vit b12, can also cause anemia. Follow-up with your doc to make sure your anemia has resolved. ...Read more

Hi. 
Would people with anemia and thalassemia experience more fatigue during diets that people without it? For example a ketogenic diet?

Address issues : If you have thalassemia minor and a very mild anemia as a result, it is a non-problem unless you marry someone else with it. If you have a second cause of significant anemia, it needs to be addressed. Unless the ketogenic diet is prescribed for epilepsy, please reconsider. These fad diets are likely to make you feel unwell and are less effective than developing a fitness habit. ...Read more
