Why have iron deficiency anemia
As the name implies, since the child nutrition and nutrition-related anemia, and why now living conditions are good, children suffering from nutritional anemia did not decrease?
In fact, iron deficiency anemia in some children from the mother began. Body of the fetus in the mother gave birth to a baby last three months of their most critical period of storage iron, keep the baby in the three months the body absorb iron from the mother, who was born during the first four months because they can not get iron from food elements and a lot of hoarding, after the birth of the hematopoietic system to meet the needs of iron. Unfortunately, some pregnant mothers were picky eaters, the partial eclipse so that your baby can not store enough iron, so many of the baby shortly after birth suffered iron deficiency anemia. Preterm children and mothers most likely to fussy baby contracting this disease, so the last three months of pregnancy the mother should be appropriate iron supplementation.
Children are often in the past because of malnutrition, inadequate intake, leading to iron deficiency anemia, the majority of children now suffering from this disease, it is to eat out. Some children eclipse, like to eat greasy and heavy flavor of the food, the result of excess nutrients to withstand overload stomach, causing digestive disorders, resulting in children with simple obesity and children due to obesity-induced fatty liver. Such as excessive drinking cold drinks, the spleen and stomach diseases caused by overeating are also many, so obstacles are inevitable iron absorption occurs. Some families eat food is too fine, the iron in these foods in their finishing process has long been consumed to make lazy,
unable to meet the body's intake of iron, a long iron deficiency anemia in children's nutritional occurred.
Eating is one of the important aspects, so the prevention of anemia in children but also fundamentally a reasonable diet, make good parents for the children of this mouth shut.
