Tomatoes As A Snack During Menstruation?
good afternoon, thank you for answering questions from niken.
Hello Niken, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Spinach is actually a better source of iron compared to tomatoes. Spinach is one of the vegetables with the highest iron content. Other foods that contain high iron include liver, red meat, shellfish, turkey, broccoli, tofu, nuts and seeds.
However, if you have anemia from blood tests, it is better to do further tests to find out the cause of your anemia. Anemia is not always caused by iron deficiency, but it can also be caused by a deficiency of vitamin B12 and folic acid, acute bleeding and chronic bleeding, chronic diseases, certain genetic diseases, cancer, etc. If anemia is caused by something else, consumption of foods containing any amount of iron will not be able to overcome anemia.
You should check with your doctor to find out the cause of your anemia first. The doctor will suggest a more complete blood test. If indeed your anemia is caused by iron deficiency, your doctor will advise you to take iron supplements to help deal with the condition.
Here are articles that you can read about anemia in general (with various causes) and iron deficiency anemia.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
