10 Hidden Health Dangers You Can’t Ignore

Anemia

“Younger women, many are anemic, and they have no clue about it. And it’s so easy to treat—but you need to know you have it,” shared Dr. Feuerstein. “I had one patient that came to see me because she was losing her hair and felt a bit fatigued. She came for hair loss and found out she was anemic.”

Feeling tired or weak? Have heavy or frequent periods? It could be anemia, a condition where you don’t have enough healthy red blood cells to carry sufficient oxygen to your body’s tissues, making you feel tired and weak. At first, anemia can be so slight that it goes unnoticed–but symptoms become more pronounced as anemia worsens.

Recommendation: Eating healthy foods can help you avoid both iron-and vitamin-deficiency anemia. Foods to eat include those with:

  • High levels of iron: dark green leafy vegetables, dried fruits, raw nuts, beef
  • Vitamin B-12: meat and dairy
  • Folic acid: more dark green leafy vegetables, citrus juices, legumes, and fortified cereals

Your doctor can also easily check for anemia with a blood test that looks at complete blood count.
