Reducing Your Risk of Nutritional Anemia

Guidelines for the prevention of nutritional anemia include the following:

Diet

A diet that meets the dietary guidelines will ordinarily have enough iron, folate, and vitamin B 12 to prevent anemia. Women of childbearing age and preterm infants may be at higher risk for anemia. Supplemental iron and folic acid may be given for those in high risk groups. It is important to consult a physician before taking any supplements.
