Are you anaemic?

Are you anaemic?
Anaemia is a condition in which the body does not have enough red blood cells. The common symptoms of anaemia are fatigue, loss of energy, dizziness, pale skin, darkness at the bottom of nails, difficulty in concentration, shortness of breath, turning of white of eyes into blue, light headedness when you stand up, sore tongue, soreness of mouth and cracks at the corners, and brittle nails with upward curvature. Iron plays a major role in the making of red blood cells. Treatment for anaemia includes intake of iron supplements and iron-rich foods. Dark green leafy vegetables, beans, tomatoes, beetroot, carrot, whole grains, sprouts, fenugreek, coconut, corn and honey are iron-rich foods. Dry dates, cereals, walnuts and almonds also play a major role in preventing the symptoms and causes of anaemia.
