The treatment of anemia depends on cause

  • Anemia of chronic disease has no specific treatment for anemia as iron are generally not helpful. If the symptoms are severe, blood transfusion is needed.
  • Aplastic anemia may include blood transfusion to boost level of bone marrow transplant.
  • hemolytic anemia treatment includes taking drugs that suppress the immune system or gamma globulin. If the spleen is enlarged, the spleen may need be removed.
  •  Sickle cell anemia treatment includes blood transfusions, folic acid supplies to the marrow transplant and cancer drugs such as hydroxyurea.

 

How to prevent from getting anemia:

  • beef or other red meat
  • beans
  • lentils (a high-protein pulse that is dried and then soaked and cooked before eating)
