Low iron

Doctor told I am having low Iron. Prescribed iron tablets to me. After taking it I am having side effects. Vomiting, headache and stomachache. What can I eat as substitute for iron tablets?

Same as me. Doc told me to eat more red meat and more fruits tts rich in vit C as it helps to absorb iron better . Try to lessen eating fish n chicken.

There's alternative to the tablets. I hate swallowing tablets so I switched to iron polymaltose oral drops instead. Need dr prescriptions though

Eat more meat and eggs as it contains high iron content. Also eat fruits rich in vitamin c to help in iron absorption.
