Can I take iron supplement for pernicious anemia?
Hello, Can I take iron supplement for pernicious anemia? I have been diagnosed with this condition. Please give me your suggestions. Will it cure my disease? My symptoms include fatigue, weakness, headaches, chest pain, weight loss and pale skin. Please help.
@nipa There is no role of iron supplements here. High-dose oral vitamin B12 supplementation may be an effective option for some people with pernicious anemia as well. In people with vitamin B12 deficiency anemia where the body can absorb vitamin B12, oral vitamin B12 supplementation and diet adjustments may be an effective treatment.
