 Diet high hemoglobin
 There are a few ways to reduce the high level of hemoglobin in the blood. One is a diet low in iron. The best example of such a diet is a meal plan in hemochromatosis, a hereditary disease in which the body absorb iron from food in larger quantities than usual, causing an excess of this element. Iron accumulates in tissues and organs, and may cause damage.


Types of iron

Food iron, which is found in various kinds of products, comes in two forms: heme and non-heme iron. The main difference between these two types of iron is their absorbability. It has been observed that the body easily absorbs heme iron. On the other hand, the absorption of non-heme iron to the body is a daunting task. Based diet with high hemoglobin Hemoglobin: worse - low or high?  Hemoglobin: worse - low or high?
   - This is an exception from the diet foods that contain easily digestible form of iron (heme iron).

The essence of the diet with high hemoglobin

Food that should be abandoned

People whose blood contained an excessive amount of iron can not afford the use of those products, which contain large amounts of heme iron. Restriction or refusal of such food is the cornerstone of the diet.



You must not drink alcohol or use it in moderation, as the combination of iron and alcohol contributes to the formation of harmful substances that can cause liver damage. In addition, alcohol promotes the absorption of iron, which further increase the hemoglobin in the blood. Therefore, to really reduce the absorption of iron, it is important to give up the habit of drinking.


Nutritional supplements

 As well as multivitamins, which is composed of iron. Vitamin C, despite the fact that it is an antioxidant Antioxidants: the truth about the notorious benefits  Antioxidants: the truth about the notorious benefits
 It increases the body's ability to absorb iron. This means that taking supplements with vitamin C is not recommended. At the same time use between meals juices rich in vitamin C, will only benefit. Eating food that contains vitamin C, is also not a cause for concern.



Popular seafood, including fish, also contain a huge amount of heme iron, so in addition to giving up meat, you must exclude or limit the amount of fish in their diet (you must completely abandon undercooked or raw seafood), to thus prevent excessive accumulation of iron body. Eating raw seafood may impair health. The reason is that the bacteria contained in the raw fish may cause severe infections in people with a high content of iron in the blood. However, carefully prepared fish and shellfish are well tolerated by the body, since heat treatment kills the germs that cause infection.


Sugar products

Although Sugary foods such as cakes and pastries are not a good source of heme iron, their use provokes increased iron absorption from our usual food, which is unacceptable for people with a high content of hemoglobin.

After this operation the first 10-12 hours, you can not even drink. The patient is administered through the nose tube, through which the stomach is periodically removed all the content. Eating after the operation is carried out parenterally, that is, bypassing the gastrointestinal tract. To do this, the patient is administered intravenously everything you need in the form of nutrient solutions into the rectum. And after a few days (usually three to five) is administered by gavage a mixture of nutrients. If the patient's condition allows, the probe is removed and the patient is eating itself. These may be mixtures or nutritional milk products, which are introduced slowly and often.

A few days after the operation (when it is - determined by the physician) go to zero diet, which is designed to maximize schazheniya gastrointestinal tract. The patient's diet includes only liquid digestible foods with salt restriction, food here is frequent (up to six times a day) and very small portions.

Gradually, focusing on the health of the patient, go on a diet number 4 for patients after bowel surgery. This diet is specially designed for maximum mechanical and chemical schazheniya intestine and reduce it fermentation processes. The daily diet of the patient are limited to carbohydrates and fats, fresh milk, fiber, sharp, spicy, salty and smoked dishes. All dishes are steamed or boiled and wiped.

Gradually extend this diet, and eventually go on a diet number 4B for patients with diseases of the intestine in the process of recovery. This diet provides good nutrition to sparing the intestine. The diet is becoming more diverse, the food is not given pureed. But all the dishes and steamed or boiled. And only a few weeks (and sometimes months, depending on the state of health) can go on a diet with the exception of the extended fatty, fried, spicy and smoked foods.

Diet in patients with chronic intestinal obstruction

The main purpose of diet in chronic intestinal obstruction - a regulation of the chair. To do this, the patient is assigned to moderately gentle mechanical power. And because this diet is a constant, it must be full, contain a sufficient amount of all the body needs protein, fat, carbohydrates, vitamins, macro- and microelements. The diet contains easily digestible foods (meat, cheese, etc.) that contain complete proteins. The meat thus be milled in the form of meatballs, meat souffle, meatballs, patties steam and so on. Useful dairy products, butter, cookies, apples and so on. Apples is recommended to cut the peel and eat them in moderate amounts, depending on the tolerance of - too much fiber can cause bloating Bloating - if you are bursting inside  Bloating - if you are bursting inside
