Thanks for your query on HCM

"As"per your clinical history is concerned please follow like this -

1)Do a clinical exam by your Doctor and to confirm do CBC with differential.

2)Discuss with your Doctor about injectable iron and vitamin B12 per week.

Do follow lifestyle modifications like this -

1)Take Iron-rich foods which include meats, beans, lentils, iron-fortified cereals, dark green leafy vegetables, and dried fruit.

2)Take folic acid, which can be found in citrus fruits and juices, bananas, dark green leafy vegetables, legumes, and fortified breads, cereals and pasta.

3)Take Vitamin B-12 which is found naturally in meat and dairy products.

4)Take foods containing vitamin C such as citrus fruits, melons and berries that help increase iron absorption.

Hope that helps
