Consumption Of Food To Overcome Low Blood Sugar And Blood Deficiency?
Good morning … what is good for mothers aged 50 + with a diagnosis of Blood Deficiency n Blood sugar deficiency. Thank you,
Thank you for the question.
Blood loss is usually another term for anemia, which is a condition where hemoglobin (Hb) levels are lower than normal. This anemia can be many possible causes, ranging from bleeding, malnutrition, chronic diseases, spinal cord disorders, malignancy, splenic disorders, hemolytic anemia, side effects of treatment, and so on.
Meanwhile, lack of blood sugar (hypoglycemia) can occur in diabetics, for example due to excessive therapy. Not only that, even healthy people can experience hypoglycemia, for example due to eating too late, excessive physical activity, drug side effects, alcoholism, hormonal disorders, liver disorders, postprandial hypoglycemia, and so on.
Clinically, the symptoms of the two conditions above can be similar, namely in the form of weakness, fatigue, pale, excessive sweating, difficulty focusing, palpitations, shortness of breath, dizziness, drowsiness, and can even lead to a lethal decrease in consciousness. If it's true that your mother's age is more than 50 years, then the possibility of these two conditions occurring associated with other degenerative diseases will be greater. Therefore, the treatment must be carried out comprehensively, not only by overcoming anemia and hypoglycaemia.
In general, for Hb levels to increase, one needs to consume more red meat, dark green leafy vegetables, whole grains, sea fish, liver, and fortified cereals. Meanwhile, for blood sugar levels to increase, consumption of sweet foods and drinks needs to be reproduced. However, this dietary recommendation can certainly be different if your mother has other diseases, besides hypoglycemia and anemia. Therefore, it is safer, you consult your mother directly to a doctor or internist in order to be given the best treatment and dietary advice that suits her condition. If necessary, it may be that the doctor will direct you to take your mother to see a nutritionist.
Hope this helps ...
