How can Anemia be Treated?

The main treatment is directed towards eliminating the cause of anemia and might include:

  • Iron, folic acid and vitamin B12 supplements- Oral supplementation with ferrous sulphate, ferrous fumarate or ferrous gluconate is recommended in mild to moderate cases of anemia. Parenteral iron is used in cases where oral iron supplementation has proved ineffective or when the anemia is severe.
  • Blood transfusion may be required in severe cases of anemia.
  • Administration of erythropoietin to stimulate the bone marrow to produce more RBCs.

I have had anemia for over 9 years. I use to get Iron infusions every 9 to 12 months. I has progressed to where I need them every 4 to 6 months. I wish we could figure out the cause. I do not absorb iron thru food or juice or pills. At this point I have waited 8 months and my hemoglobin is at 7. I am due to get infusions of Venefor in 2 weeks. No diagnosis over all these years. Why and Why is it progressing.

In order to comment further I need to have certain test reports. Can you tell me the reports of: 1) Latest CBC 2) Peripheral Smear 3) Iron Studies(Ferritin, S. Iron, TIBC) 4) Hemoglobin Electrophoresis 5) Bone Marrow Biopsy( If Done)
