You should eat a diet high in iron-rich foods and vitamin C to prevent low blood-iron levels..... Diets high in red meat, dark leafy vegetables, dried fruits and nuts, iron-fortified cereals, or bread can help treat or prevent iron deficiency.... Iron tablets can help restore iron levels in your body. You may need to take iron supplements for several months. ...
