Does Diet play a role in Menorrhagia
Treatment of Menorrhagia is based on identifying the cause, and then taking the appropriate medications. This includes problems with the uterine lining, blood clotting issues, hormonal problems, or uterine polyps. Research suggests that certain dietary modifications can be beneficial to some extent. Include foods high in iron and vitamin C.
¿Qué es la menorragia?
Menorrhagia, a common condition among women, is often seen at the beginning or end of their reproductive life. The condition is more prevalent when a woman is approaching menopause. Menorrhagia occurs when a woman’s ‘period,’ or period, is too long and excessively bleeds. This condition can be due to uterine polyps, fibroids or cancer. The excessive bleeding can lead to anemia and iron deficiency. This causes fatigue and lightheadedness. Following certain nutritional changes can help relieve the symptoms.
