HOW TO NORMALIZE YOUR RED BLOOD CELL COUNT AND HAEMOGLOBIN LEVEL
Anaemia is a blood related disorder in which the oxygen carrying capacity of blood decreases due to various possible factors. The disease is characterized by low Hb concentration in blood, low RBC and haematocrit.
Out of the possible causes of iron deficiency, the most common cause is dietary deficiencies, basically of iron. However, deficiency of folic acid and Vitamin B12 also leads to iron deficiency as they play major role in the production of red blood cells. Iron deficiency (IDA) is diagnosed by low Hb levels with biochemical evidences of low iron like low serum ferritin concentration. Iron is very important constituent of red blood cell and hence, deficiency in this mineral can impair red blood cell synthesis.
Inadequate absorption of iron and low red blood cell count is the major cause of iron deficiency. Women and children have higher tendency to develop iron deficiency due to high demands of iron in the body. Women of child bearing age need more iron than men to compensate for the blood loss during menstruation. Monthly blood loss is the major reason behind more and more women developing iron deficiency.
Boost iron intake and hence, red blood cells to combat iron deficiency
Iron deficiency has long been associated with impairment of work performance, endurance and total productivity. However, the treatment has been some simple if there is no underlying cause. Simple measures to boost the red blood cells can result in the eradication of the disease.
Iron is needed in the red blood cell production with Vitamin B12 and folic acid. Deficiency in any one of them can lead to low Hb and poor red blood cell synthesis. Taking food rich in all these three components can help combat iron deficiency effectively by correcting the red blood cell production.
WHO recommends that pregnant women need 60 mg iron daily as they have to supply iron to their baby's system to promote growth and development of the child. This daily intake of iron not only helps both mother and baby stay healthy but also provides the opportunity to improve maternal store of iron postpartum. The daily dose of iron boost healthy red blood cell production in both child and the mother. Small children, who also need slightly more iron for complete growth and development, must be given iron rich food to prevent production of faulty red blood cells.
