HYPOCHROMIC MICROCYTIC ANEMIA
Hypochromic Microcytic Anemia is a blood disorder characterized by small red blood cells which have insufficient haemoglobin and reduced capacity to carry oxygen through the body. The symptoms of Hypochromic Microcytic Anemia normally include loss of appetite, pale lips, pale eyelids, sore mouth, brittle nails, irregular heartbeat, chest pain, dizziness or difficulty swallowing.
HOW IS HYPOCHROMIC MICROCYTIC ANEMIA DIAGNOSED?
While Hypochromic Microcytic Anemia is caused due to iron deficiency anemia, it is always advised to visit a General Physician/Ayurvedic Doctor for its timely diagnosis. The doctor normally diagnoses Hypochromic Microcytic Anemia by performing a physical examination and blood test to check the red blood cell count.
HOW IS HYPOCHROMIC MICROCYTIC ANEMIA TREATED?
Treatment of microcytic hypochromic anaemia is dependant upon the underlying cause for the iron deficiency. Treatments include:
• Investigation and treatment of underlying conditions such as coeliac disease, menorrhagia, bowel cancer
• Dietary review and management - to ensure adequate iron intake in the diet
• Iron supplementation - used when the patient is stable and the underlying cause has been identified, to restore haemoglobin levels and replenish iron stores
• Blood transfusion - for management of severe anemia where there is evidence of end organ compromise such as cardiac ischemia or cardiac failure.
DID YOU KNOW?
Mild degrees of anemia often cause only slight and vague symptoms, perhaps nothing more than easy fatigue or a lack of energy. As the condition progresses, more severe symptoms may be experienced, such as shortness of breath, pounding of the heart, and a rapid pulse, these are caused by the inability of anemic blood to supply the body tissues with enough oxygen.
