Low Iron Foods Are Important

People who have a high amount of iron in their blood are best to stay away from foods that are high in iron unless directed by a physician. People who have a high amount of iron in their blood can develop conditions like Hemochromatosis. Hemochromatosis can be a serious condition that can lead to organ failure and even death. If you have this condition, it is vital that you seek the care of a physician and stick to the diet that is prescribed to you.

One of the best forms of iron rich foods are meats that are red. If you are trying to keep your weight down, or are concerned about gaining weight, you may want to consume red meats that are classified as ?extra lean?. One of the best sources of meat in the area of iron is liver.

If you do not eat meat for personal reasons, but wish to reap the benefits of additional iron, you may want to consider eating foods that contain high levels of Vitamin C. This vitamin helps the body to absorb the iron that it needs more quickly. If you do not eat meat and wish to implement more iron into your diet, you should ensure that you are eating a lot of beans, dried fruit, and grains.

Don't Let Genetic Hemochromatosis Kill You
