Self-Help and Treatment
Anemia affects an estimated 400 million women throughout the world. Most women are unaware of the symptoms of anemia?,shortness of breath, fatigue, weakness, headaches and lapses of concentration?,and tend to attribute such mild symptoms to the stresses of modern life.
Yet, if anemia remains undiagnosed, it can lead to infertility in women of childbearing age, premature delivery in pregnant women, and in severe cases?,fainting, and mental confusion in women of any age.
In Anemia in Women, author Joan Gomez, M.D., explains why women are more susceptible to developing anemia than men. She discusses the signs and symptoms of anemia, the variety of ways in which anemia can occur at various stages of life, and the prevention and treatment available for anemia.
Her book also addresses the following topics:
* Symptoms, signs and tests for anemia
* Types of anemia?,iron-deficiency anemia and pernicious anemia
* Self-help and alternative treatments for anemia
A comprehensive and informative self-help manual, Anemia in Women, offers specific health advice by educating readers how to recognize signs and symptoms of anemia in themselves and in their families and friends. Whether a woman is a teenager, a mother, or a grandmother, she should be educated on this silent disease.
