Anaemia is a blood condition that commonly affects people who are lacking healthy red blood cells as well as a proper haemoglobin count in the body. It can also be caused by blood loss that occurs during menstruation and childbirth, and due to other reasons as well. It is also caused by iron and vitamin deficiency. The symptoms of this ailment may include nausea, vomiting and dizzy spells.
HOW IS ANEMIA DIAGNOSED?
Anaemia can be detected by simple blood test called CBC. A thorough examination of stained blood smear using a microscope can be helpful. The physician might do a physical examination and question for medical history to arrive at the detection point of Anaemia.
HOW IS ANEMIA TREATED?
Treatment of anaemia depends on the cause. Anaemia due to deficiency of iron can be treated through iron supplements. If bleeding (apart from menstrual) causes anaemia, then the bleeding must be arrested through surgery. Anaemia caused due to vitamin deficiency can be treated through dietary supplements. Anaemia due to bone marrow disease requires chemotherapy or radiation therapy. Thalassemia requires regular blood transfusions.
