Anemia, Illnesses that Attack Mostly Women

Anemia is an illness that attacks women more often than men. In fact, the population most often affected by anemia is non-pregnant women. This happens when there isn’t enough oxygen in the blood, and the number of red blood cells decreases.

This could happen when the red blood cells are either being destroyed are being destroyed at a rate faster than they are being destroyed, or when their overall production has been slowed down.

All of this can be caused by:

  • Menstruation

  • Lesions on the stomach or intestines

  • Liver or spleen disorders

  • Genetic disorders

  • Hemolysis, or the breaking of red cells caused by incompatibility with some medicines

  • Cirrhosis

  • Surgery

  • Endometriosis

  • Childbirth

  • Hypothyroidism

  • Deficiency of iron, vitamin B12 or folate

  • Lack or slow production of red blood cells in the kidneys

    Anemia can cause the skin to look pale, weak nails, hair loss, moodiness, headaches and tiredness as some of the most common symptoms.

    What Dr. Rigoberto Perez Diaz recommends to prevent or treat anemia is to have a nutritious diet, with a focus on foods that are rich on iron and folic acids (such as green vegetables, red meats, fish, liver, legumes, milk and eggs), and backing up your vitamin intake with Super High Potency Plus.
