Take 2 Types Of Supplements Containing Folic Acid To Treat Anemia During Pregnancy?
Hello, I want to ask, why is my pregnancy age 29 weeks, but my hb is 11.2 and can I get folamil gold and blood plus etabion, can both of them be taken together? Because there are folic acid as well
Hello Fitria, Thank you for your question at HealthReplies.com
The nutritional needs of pregnant women are quite high, even up to two times the nutritional needs of normal people. Normal Hb values for pregnant women are above 11 mg / dl. If anemia is declared if the Hb level is less than 11 mg / dl.
In addition to Hb pregnant women must also meet the nutritional needs, vitamins and other minerals. Especially folic acid which is useful for preventing interference with the baby's brain. Folic acid in pregnant women requires as much as 800 mcg per day, while non-pregnant women need 400 mcg.
It is said that you were given folamil gold which contains 1 mg of folate Adam, vitamin D3 400 IU, calcium carbonate 250 mg, and DHA algae 200 mg. which is where this vitamin is more towards the vitamin for bones. While Etabion contains more vitamins and other minerals, such as: ferro fumarate 176 mg, vitamin C 50 mg, folic acid 1 mg, vitamin B12 7.5 mcg, cupri sulfate 0.2 mg, manganese sulfate 0.2 mg. which is where this vitamin is more like the addition of iron vitamins.
As I already mentioned that pregnant women only need about 800 mcg per day, so it would be nice if you take one of these drugs. Because if you experience excess folic acid will cause some side effects, including: bloating, difficulty sleeping, nausea, decreased appetite, mood changes, and a strange taste in the mouth, lack of concentration, weakness, fatigue, confusion and tingling.
My advice, it's better for you to take just one drug, for example more to supplement iron. And sufficient nutrition for bone formation with other vitamin D that does not contain folic acid. Or you can consult yourself directly to the obstetrician.
May be useful. Always Healthy 😊
