Procedures To Treat Anemia

Anemia
Maybe the doctor will prescribe medicine to increase the amount of red blood cells your body produces or treat the underlying cause of anemia.

Some of these medicines are:

* Antibiotics to treat infections
* Hormone Treatment for adult women and adolescents who have heavy menstrual bleeding
* A synthetic form of erythropoietin to stimulate the body to produce more red blood cells. This hormone carries    certain risks. You and your doctor will decide whether the benefits of this treatment outweigh the risks.
* Medicines to prevent the immune system destroys its own red blood cells
* Chelation to treat lead poisoning. Chelation is used primarily for children, because children with iron deficiency anemia are more at risk for lead poisoning.

If your anemia is severe, you may need medical procedures to treat it. These procedures are blood transfusions and transplantation of blood stem cells and bone marrow.
