What is the treatment for anemia?

0

With any type of anemia, there are two treatment goals: • to get red blood cell counts or hemoglobin levels back to normal so that your organs and tissues can get enough oxygen • to treat the underlying cause of the anemia The treatment your doctor prescribes for you will depend on the cause of the anemia. For example, treatment for sickle cell anemia is different than treatment for anemia caused by low iron or folic acid intake. Treatment may include changes in foods you eat, taking dietary supplements (like vitamins or iron pills), changing the medicines you are taking, or in more severe forms of anemia, medical procedures such as blood transfusion or surgery.
