Folic acid in anemia

Medication Information: Vitamins are substances that we need in small amounts for the growth and general health of the body. Our bodies do not store much folic acid, so we need to get sources of this vitamin on a regular basis. To get folic acid, you can eat foods that contain it, including spinach, sprouts, cauliflower, green beans, peas, brown rice, offal, liver, and potatoes.

Some people may not get enough folic acid from food sources for a variety of reasons. Folic acid is important for the production of red blood cells. Lack of it can lead to anemia, which can be accompanied by symptoms such as fatigue and sometimes other symptoms. Folic acid deficiency can be treated with a multi-month supplement.

 

Folic acid in pregnancy

Normally, pregnant women need a good source of folic acid because a growing fetus needs folic acid. Research has shown that taking folic acid supplements reduces the risk of diseases such as spina bifida and other neural tube defects in the baby. The use of folic acid in the early stages of pregnancy is very important, which is why the use of this supplement is included in the pregnancy plan of pregnant women.

All pregnant women (even healthy women with a healthy diet) are prescribed a folic acid supplement for at least the first 12 weeks of pregnancy (one supplement of 400 micrograms daily). If your pregnancy is planned, you should start taking folic acid before fertilization, but if your pregnancy is unintended, you should start taking folic acid supplement immediately after you notice.

If you or a family member has ever been pregnant with a fetal neural tube defect, you should take a 5 mg folic acid supplement daily until the twelfth week. You will also be prescribed a 5 mg folic acid supplement if you have conditions such as celiac disease, diabetes, sickle cell anemia, or are taking medications to treat epilepsy.

 

Folic acid in other diseases

Folic acid, along with methotrexate, is used to treat conditions such as psoriasis and severe Crohn's disease, psoriasis and arthritis. It is prescribed with methotrexate to reduce the side effects of methotrexate.
