Women are at risk of developing anaemia during various life stages or for medical reasons. Five of these stages are set out below and in each case iron supplements will help restore her vitality. If you’re one of these women, consult your doctor about taking iron supplements today.
She’s anaemicIf your iron levels are low, your body doesn’t have enough iron to help your red blood cells carry oxygen via your blood throughout your whole body. Women are more prone to iron-deficiency anaemia than men. An iron supplement helps your red blood cells do their job so you won’t feel exhausted all the time.
Anaemia is more common during pregnancy and is associated with low birth weight, premature birth and even maternal mortality. You’re more likely to become anaemic during pregnancy because of the excess amount of blood the body produces to help provide nutrients to the baby. There are three types of anaemia that are most prevalent during pregnancy: iron-deficiency anaemia, folate-deficiency (folic acid) anaemia and vitamin B12 deficiency anaemia.
When the blood loss is greater than your body’s ability to replace the lost red blood cells you can become anaemic. Women who experience heavy menstrual bleeding are at greater risk of becoming anaemic and will benefit from iron supplements.
She’s a new momBlood loss during and after child birth increases a woman’s risk of developing anaemia. Iron-deficiency anaemia has been linked to an increase in postnatal depression and the prevalence of urinary tract infections, fatigue and exhaustion, insufficient milk syndrome and reduced breast-milk quality. An iron supplement is therefore important for mom and baby’s health.
Women who regularly do intense exercise are at an increased risk of becoming anaemic. While it’s still possible to exercise with anaemia, you run the risk of developing lactic acidosis, of feeling lethargic and of experiencing fatigue more quickly as well as a decrease in endurance. Your recovery time might be longer and you might feel more muscle stiffness than you’d expect.
