Hey, I'm highly anaemic but the pills worked for me during pregnancy,
There are many iron rich foods thankfully, would eating lots of them help in any way?
Foods that are a good source of iron include:
lean red meats, including beef, pork, lamb
seafood, such as oysters, clams, tuna, salmon, and shrimp, etc.
beans, including kidney, lima, navy, black, pinto, soy beans, and lentils
iron fortified whole grains, including cereals, breads, rice, and pasta
greens, including collard greens, kale, mustard greens, spinach, and turnip greens
vegetables, including broccoli, swiss chard, asparagus, parsley, watercress, brussel sprouts
chicken and turkey
dried fruits, such as raisins, prunes, dates and apricots
Best of luck xx
