I had 12.4 hb and now in 7th month start it came out reduced to 9.1 and doc suggested lot of iron sources to recover hb. I had lot of crying, anger and anxiety in past 3 months in the family due to some different conditions at home and I wanted to know if Anger, anxiety can lead to reduce in hoemoglobin??

Anger and anxiety will not lead to low level of hb but it's not good for your health.. relax and take things lightly now..take ieo. Rich food and iro. Supplements too.. dates, rajma , spinach are good

HB getting low in pregnancy ia not related to anger issues. Usually it happens as your baby also takes the nutrients from you. Have iron rich foods.

Things to know about Iron rich foods: 1. Adding meat or seafood to a meal will increase iron absorption from eggs, dals, vegetables in that meal. 2. Calcium-rich foods in the same meal will impede iron absorption, so avoid combining iron with dairy foods. 3. Iron-rich foods absorb better in the presence of vitamin C. 4. Iron-rich vegetarian foods include lentils and other legumes (dals), beans (rajma etc), dried fruits (raisins, dates, prunes, apricots etc), leafy green veggies (broccoli, different saag/keerai varieties), millets (ragi, etc). 5. Vitamin C is in mangoes, tomatoes, pumpkin, lime and other citrus fruits, capsicum, etc. Bonus: fermenting, sprouting and soaking grains and dals hugely increases how much iron is absorbed from it. Spinach is not easy to absorb iron from. Too many chemicals in it that impede absorption, phytates, oxalates, fibre.
