Iron deficiency anemia

You get iron deficiency anemia when your body's iron stores run low.
Iron loss can be due to bleeding. Common causes of bleeding are
Heavy, long, or frequent menstrual periods
The use of aspirin
, or arthritis
medicines for a long time, which can cause gastrointestinal bleeding
or due to reduced intake or faulty absorption
You may have no symptoms if the anemia is mild.
Most of the time, symptoms are mild at first and develop slowly. Symptoms may include:
Feeling weak or tired
Problems concentrating or thinking
Shortness of breath
Taking iron supplementsand eating iron-rich foods are important parts of treating iron deficiency anemia. But it is very important to find out the cause of iron deficiency, which needs to be corrected first.

Chicken and turkey
Meats (liver is the highest source)
