?? about anemia


My question is I know if u drink alot of soda your body doesnt absorb Iron like it should.. so I have been eating my nana's and drinking my apple juice but I usually dont drink plain water.. I usually buy the golden peach, Sams choice brand which is the only kind I have found that I like.. Is the flavored water as good for me to drink as just plain water?? Or do I need to just try to tough it out with plain water??

I don't think anything is as good for you as plain water. A lot of the flavored waters have a lot of sugar in them. I don't let my kids drink the flavored waters and I limit myself to soft drinks only when we eat out. It's easier for all of us if I don't even keep the stuff in the house.

Hi Melinda,

I am happy to give you my Mayo family physician's advice on this and it has worked well for me.

Prior to my diagnosis of anemia during an annual physical examination, my physician advised me to mix a small amount of high-potassium juice (just read the labels) together with water. He knew that I drank a lot of purified water all day long (no sodas and juices only very rarely prior) and he was concerned about my water-only intake and told me to add potassium-rich juice to my water.

So instead of heading off to fill up at the water fountain, I head first to the fridge, fill up my glass with purified ice, about 1/4 full of high-potassium juice, and the rest with purified water. Now when I reach for water only, it tastes so bland! I change my fruit juices regularly and most of the drinks are delicious. One reason for diluting them is to avoid too much sugar.

I was diagnosed with very low iron stores, low serum iron, and moderate anemia on January 30th of this year and prescribed ferrous sulfate 325 mg twice daily and have taken it religiously. By my third blood test on February 27, I was no longer anemic and my physician was very pleased to report that my body was producing new red blood cells "abundantly."

I did seek out more iron-rich foods during this time (no problem, as I seemed to crave them!) and made a point of trying to add an orange or vitamin C source to each meal to help with iron absorption.

Hope this helps!

if you are eating breakfast cereal, a lot of them have added vitamins etc. special k is particularly high in iron. also drinking orange juice with meals, and leaving coffee/tea for half an hour or so will help
