Iron supplements for aneamiaMost often, iron supplements are given to people who are suffering from this form of anaemia. Your GP will keep an eye on your iron levels over a few months until they have returned to normal. To provide the best treatment, they will also need to find out what triggered your anaemia in the first place.
If any of your current medication was causing anaemia, your doctor may swap it for an alternative. Many anaemic people may find that increasing iron intake in their diet may also improve symptoms. It seems Popeye had the right idea as dark-green leafy vegetables, like spinach and curly kale are good sources of iron. Nuts, seeds, brown rice, meat, eggs, and fish are also rich in iron.
