Hello there. I can understand your concern. Tes she is taking a proper diet although you can increase the intake of dals. Additionally she needs to take a tab. Livogen-z once a day after food which is a iron supplement with zinc which will help in increasing the Hb soon. She should also get adequate sun exposure like for atleast 20 minutes a day with atleast 20 percent of body area exposed before 12. It would take atleast 2 months to come to a normal level. After pregnancy also she will have to maintain a good diet and she will have to take supplements. Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain.
