In case the doctor has indicated that you have low hemoglobin levels, you should follow his instructions and start to improve your eating habits.
In order to restore hemoglobin levels and restore health and well-being, it is essential to adopt and maintain a balanced diet, which includes the different food groups in sufficient quantities. Of course, it is also advisable to take advantage of iron sources.
Below we will tell you what these sources are and what other contributions they can provide you when you include them regularly (and in moderation) in your diet.
Hemoglobin, anemia, iron, and diet
The experts of the Spanish Association of People Affected by Lymphoma, Myeloma and Leukemia (AEAL) point out that hemoglobin is “a substance rich in iron whose function is to transport oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the cells of the body.”
In order to perform its functions correctly and have adequate hemoglobin levels, the body needs to obtain iron through food. Otherwise, anemia occurs.
To know if hemoglobin levels are normal or altered, the doctor must order a blood test. This test is usually necessary when the person reports symptoms such as: fatigue, dizziness, cold, irritability, tiredness, lack of energy, a lot of sleep, etc.
