Yster

Neem jy ysteraanvullings? Hier is wat jy moet weet.

Voeding

  1. Moet nooit ysteraanvullings neem tensy jou dokter sê jy het dit nodig nie, veral nie as jy aan ’n chroniese toestand ly nie, en selfs al is jy swanger.
  2. Vra jou dokter of ’n ysterpil veilig is as jy ander medisyne drink – ysteraanvullings reageer met veral teensuurmiddels, anti-inflammatoriese pyndoders, antibiotika en kalsium.
  3. Selfs ’n normale dosis kan jou maag omkrap, jou stoelgang laat verander en hardlywigheid veroorsaak.

  • Hoe weet jy jy het ’n ystertekort? Swak skoolprestasie, gereelde infeksies, aptytverlies, bleekheid, naels wat maklik breek, ’n gladde rooi tong, haarverlies en kortasemheid is simptome.
  • Drink jou ysteraanvulling met ’n vol glas water of kos.
