Find balance and beat iron-deficiency anemia. Iron deficiency, whether it is severe enough to lead to anemia or not, can result from a number of health issues. According to research or other evidence, the following self-care steps may be helpful.
  • Take iron as directed

    Follow your doctor’s instructions for using iron supplements

  • Get your vitamin C

    Eating vitamin C–rich foods with meals and taking 100 to 500 mg of vitamin C with iron supplements will improve your iron absorption

  • Don’t mix iron with beverage breaks

    Drinking coffee or tea with iron supplements inhibits absorption

  • Find the cause

    Iron deficiency can have many non-nutritional causes, including some serious diseases, so work with your doctor to investigate why you are low in iron

  • Know your iron level

    To avoid possible problems related to iron overload, have your blood tested regularly for both high and low iron while you are taking iron supplements
