Green leafy vegetables and dates, but need to check reason for anemia, could be an underlying ulcer or sometimes even cancer.

First of all one need to find the cause of your dad's anemia. Is your dad loosing weight? 39 Kg is too low for his height, age and sex. If this is a recent weight loss one must rule outany underlying medical cause of anemia including cancer before blaming it on malnutrition
Treatment should be guided by the objective findings. Your physician should see him i9n person and do a thorough physical exam and you should do things under his/her guidance.This is just a general advice. I assume no responsibility.

I am 24 year old male with weight of 72 Kg and height of 178 CM. I had problem of hemorrhoids in which piles used to bleed whenever I went to the loo.Now bleeding has stopped after 30-40 days, but I am feeling very weak now. So I consulted a physician and he referred me for blood test, which indicated that my Hemoglobin level was 5 g/dl Can you please suggest what should be done to increase the level?

Thanks in Advance

ask your doc about novaferrum liquid iron .. -- they sell it over the counter, it has a surprisingly good taste to it too and "it's not" made out of ferrous sulfate which I can't stand... hope this helps.
