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?
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 red meat
Eat more meat and eggs as it contains high iron content. Also eat fruits rich in vitamin c to help in iron absorption.
Tuna, salmon, red meat, spinach, lentils. Take vitamin c pills for easy absorption
Red meat, spinach, kale?
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.
Eat more beans
- Hi mommies, just want to enquire, what are the alternatives for iron supplement. I am currently 26wks+ and taking Obimin as a daily prenatal vitamin along with fish oil. My blood test result showed that my Hb is low (9.5) and Dr has prescribed iron supplement. I am not in favor of consuming alot of medications. Besides beetroot, spinach and redmeat, are there any other food that I can consume to boost my iron level? TIA :)
