Anemia is a disease related to blood, which is also called anemia in the body. Due to this disease, there is a deficiency of hemoglobin in the body. The latest reports suggest that 58 per cent of children and 53 per cent of young women and 50 per cent of pregnant women suffer from anemia. Although many things are being done by the government to overcome this, but the outline of some policy changes is also being prepared in it. Indian health experts are preparing to change the standards of anemia test in consultation with the World Health Organization (WHO). Before this, know what is anemia and its symptoms-
what is anemia
Iron deficiency starts in the body. When the blood cells in the body gradually start ending. This happens when the body does not get the diet as per the requirement. Mostly this problem occurs in adolescence.
What are its symptoms
Talking about its symptoms, it includes pale skin, fatigue, shortness of breath, chest pain, cold hands and feet, headache, dizziness, fatigue, rapid heartbeat.
What do experts say
According to experts, the new guidelines will be put in front of the common people in a very simple way so that even a normal educated person can understand them and ensure their food and drink accordingly. With this, the new guidelines have been focused on three parameters. Quantity, quality and content of food. The five food items include vegetables, fruits, nuts, fat and milk products.
Experts from NIN said that the new guidelines have tried to change the existing eating pattern. For example, if a person needs 2100 calories daily, then he should get 50 percent of it from cereals but he is getting 70 percent of calories from cereals. This trend has been observed especially in rural areas. Calories from protein should be between 12-15 percent. That’s fine to an extent. While 20-30 per cent of calories should be obtained from fat, it is less in rural areas and more than 40 per cent in urban areas. Due to these eating disorders, diabetes and other metabolic disorders are arising. A proper diet is essential for nutrition.
NIN will conduct a comprehensive food survey later this year to find out what Indians are currently eating. He did such a survey in 2017 also.
