How to deal with anaemia

I have had anaemia for 17 months and the doctor does not even know why I have this condition. I would like to know where I can get help to find out why I have this condition as it is ruining my life and I cannot cope anymore. I feel tired all the time and I can hardly walk five minutes without getting tired.

Does anyone know of any healthcare professionals that I can contact as I have tried with no luck.

I really need to have my symptoms improved as I do not think I can carry on I am

There can be multiple reasons responsible behind Anaemia. Please consult a doctor for best advice.

Eating more food varieties that contain iron. Great wellsprings of iron incorporate meat, fish, eggs, beans, peas, and invigorated food sources (search for cereals strengthened with 100 percent of the day to day incentive for iron). Eating more food varieties with L-ascorbic acid. L-ascorbic acid assists your body with retaining iron

Agreed.

You could also try iron supplements. But you want to make sure you are getting iron in your diet. I don't know if you're a vegetarian but you need to eat meat: it contains iron and will keep your energy levels up. It isn't a good idea to be vegetarian when you've got anaemia. A lot of people might disagree with me but that is what I think.

Re: How to deal with anaemia

I have been to a doctor to help and I have had three endoscopy's in the last five years, a colonoscopy and a CT contrast enema and there was nothing serious found. I was very ill in June 2023 and I had to go to A&E and I had two iron infusions. I am better now but I do not know if I will remain stable.

I take iron tablets but they make me constipated. I am not a vegetarian and I am a meat eater so I do not the reason why or neither does the doctor know why I have anemia and would like to know so I can have a normal life again and go walking which I feel is difficult as I get breathless.

I have also been to general surgery and gastrology but they have not given me the reason why and they are baffled. I have one more appointment in Haemotology and hopefully they can find out.

I do not want to be ill like I was in June 2023 and since I was diagnosed with anemia

Re: How to deal with anaemia

I have very little knowledge of blood health and your post made me open my eyes. The fact you're not a vegetarian and eat meat makes me also wonder why you have anaemia.

Again, I am not a blood doctor but I do hope the Haemotology department of your hospital are able to come up with some answers. Because it must be very frustrating for you. The side effects your iron tablets cause are a problem, as well.

I really hope you don't become so ill again and Haemotology provide answers.

Re: How to deal with anaemia

Hello thanks for the suggestions for what to eat but I do not like spinach or kale. If you know of any other good iron rich foods then please let me know.
