Hello, thanks for the question.
Anemia is a condition where the body lacks hemoglobin in the blood. Hemoglobin (Hb) is an oxygen-carrying agent throughout the body, if Hb is low, it will cause oxygen to be circulated throughout the body to be reduced so that it can cause weakness, dizziness, difficulty concentrating, dizzy vision, shortness of breath, cold hands and feet, heart palpitations -debar, and others. The causes of this anemia are numerous, can be due to:
Lack of ingredients forming blood cells, can be due to intake of food that is lacking due to poor diet or due to absorption of these materials in the body which is lacking for example due to damage to the stomach and intestinal lining, postoperative in the stomach and intestine, etc. other
Rapid and heavy blood loss
Faster destruction of red blood cells / hemolytic anemia
Chronic / long-term diseases such as malignancy, TB, kidney disease, and others
Disorders of blood cell production, for example disorders of bone marrow where blood cells are formed
Heredity with anemia, etc.
To ascertain the cause of the complaint should consult a doctor, the doctor will conduct question and answer, physical examination, and supporting examinations, such as blood tests, x-rays, ultrasound, and others to find the cause of anemia. If a laboratory examination has been done and hemoglobin levels in the blood are below normal then it can be said to be anemia. For more details, you should consult the doctor who sent you to do the examination, the doctor will match the results of the laboratory examination with your clinical condition so that treatment can be more appropriate. Treatment will be tailored to the causes and conditions of anemia that occur. Your doctor may suggest dietary modifications, supplementation of blood-containing supplements containing iron, vitamin B12, folic acid, vitamins and other minerals, administration of other medicines, or even blood transfusions if needed. To avoid anemia, it's best to:
Consume foods rich in vitamins and minerals, such as iron, (beef, beans, iron-fortified cereals, dark green leafy vegetables, and dried fruit), vitamin B12 (meat, milk, cheese, cereals, and foods from soybeans (tempeh or tofu)), folic acid (fruits, dark green leafy vegetables, green beans, kidney beans, peanuts, wheat, cereals, pasta, and rice), vitamin C (oranges, pepper, broccoli, tomatoes, melons and strawberries, these foods can help absorption of iron), and foods that contain vitamins and other minerals
Sufficient fluid needs
Consult a doctor if you have a family history of anemia, because some diseases that cause anemia can be inherited such as thalassemia
Avoid stress, cigarettes, and alcohol.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
