Treatment for anemia.
Hello, my wife suffers from anemia. she is 34 years old. Last year she gave birth. I am worried about her. Can anyone suggest treatment for anemia? anemia is a condition where a lack of iron in the body leads to a reduction in the number of red blood cells. Iron is used to produce red blood cells, which help store and carry oxygen in the blood. Fewer red blood cells than is normal, organs and tissues won't get as much oxygen as they usually would. Women are more prone to iron deficiency? Please suggest what can be done to treat it?
@xtun Hello, iron-deficiency anemia is treated with:
- Iron supplements are taken by mouth.
- Foods are high in iron and foods that help your body absorb iron (like foods with Vitamin C).
- Iron gave through an intravenous (IV) infusion.
- Anemia is caused by internal bleeding, your provider may need to do surgery to stop it.
Some kinds of anemia, such as those that are inherited, cannot be prevented. However, you can prevent anemia caused by iron deficiency, vitamin B12 deficiency, and vitamin B9 deficiency by eating well. This includes eating a diet with enough foods that provide iron and these vitamins, along with vitamin C food sources to help with the absorption. It is better to take the doctor's advice. Thanks!
