What are the Symptoms of Anaemia, and How to do treatment?

Anaemia is due to a reduction either in the amount of blood in the body or in the haemoglobin level. The quantity of blood in the body is assessed by measuring the level of haemoglobin either in gm per 100 ml or as a percentage; 100 per cent is equivalent to 14 gm. Here we introduce the symptoms and treatment of it.

How to treat anaemia?

Treatment of anaemia should follow the cause of it. Here we list the treatment of it based on 3 common anaemia.

  • For Anemia Caused by Iron Deficiency. You can treat it as below. In young women, iron deficiency anemia can result from heavy menstrual bleeding. Non-menstruating women or men who develop iron deficiency need to have a colon exam (colonoscopy or barium enema) to help identify the source of chronic bleeding.
  • If you suddenly lose a large volume of blood, you may be treated with fluids, a blood transfusion, oxygen, and possibly iron to help your body build new red blood cells. Chronic blood loss is treated by identifying the source of bleeding, stopping the bleeding, and, if necessary, providing treatment for iron-deficiency anemia.
  • For Anemia Caused by Decreased Red Blood Cell Production. You should treat it depends on the cause of decreased red blood cell production. We suggest you to ask doctor’s advice in detail.
