Dr. Rahul Bhargava was invited to talk about Anemia and general health concerns at the Mitsubishi India office. There were 50 people who attended the talk session and free anemia check-up was performed.
It was not surprising to see a few anemic people who admitted that they feel tired and always lack energy while performing day to day tasks. For people working in a highly stressed and competitive environment, it becomes all the way more important to pay close attention to your own health.
Anemia is one such neglected segment especially amongst the women of our country. Young people with mild or moderate iron-deficiency anemia may not have symptoms.
However, more severe iron-deficiency anemia may cause fatigue, tiredness, shortness of breath, or chest pain and also increase irritability. This is the cause of concern which leads to other health issues such as an enlarged heart in the long run. 50% of Indian women are anemic.
Get your hemoglobin test done and find out the root cause. Iron deficiency anemia can be easily fixed by taking supplements and improving diet.
