Nutrition and Diet for People with Hemophilia
Eating healthy is easier said than done, especially for people who are managing a chronic condition like a bleeding disorder. The stress of trying to keep up with a busy schedule can often lead to overeating, eating on the run and poor food choices. Taking charge of your health when you have hemophilia is of great importance. Regardless of your hemophilia type — A, B or C — the goal is to keep your joints strong and healthy, and to keep extra weight off to avoid muscle strains and bleeding in vulnerable joints.
Tips on choosing the best food:
(1)Choose a rainbow of colorful fruits and vegetables. Dark leafy greens are great sources of vitamins, minerals, and fiber.
(2)Baked, broiled, or grilled lean meats are healthier than fried.
(3)Whole grains, like oats and brown rice, and whole grain breads can help curb your appetite and stabilize your blood sugar.
