I recommend you taking some herbal Home remedies for you problem
Apples are very good for anemia as they have high iron content. They should be eaten regularly; preferably after every meal.
Beetroot is also a very good source of iron. Apart from iron it contains various other minerals that are protective in function to the body.
Figs must be eaten regularly, at the rate of three to four per day.
Organ meats like kidney and liver must be included in the diet.
Citrus fruits like oranges, lemons, etc. must be eaten in excess. They should be eaten at regular intervals and not all at once.

glad that you satisfied with our answers.See let me tell you one thing, Dexorange is not for increasing your body weight. The other girl might have been prescribed this tonic because probably she was diagnosed Vit B12 deficiency anemia. Now its v imp to figure out type of anemia , you suffering from. For that you need to undergo complete iron study, peripheral smear for type of anemia apart from complete blood count. Once these results there, a physician will be in a position to prescribe you the right medicine

Anemia as such has lot many causes behind. as explained by other experts, iron deficiency anemia is common.

do get following tests done ;

1. Blood profile

3. B12
4. Endoscopy under gastroenterologists if you have any digestive problems to rule out internal bleeding as a cause.

Dietary modifications :

Iron as well citrus fruits will do for general iron deficiency anemia.
