Tests and investigations

Iron deficiency anaemia can be easily diagnosed with simple blood tests. The aim of treatment is to substitute the deficiency and unearth the underlying cause of anaemia. The doctor may prescribe oral iron medications which act effectively when taken with orange juice. Injectible preparations of iron may also be considered in infrequent cases but they are not commonly used due to increased instances of morbidity. Consumption of iron rich foods like spinach, broccoli and raisins are advisable. Consult a gynaecologist if you have increased menstrual bleeding for timely diagnosis and treatment of any abnormal pathology. Regular follow up with your consulting doctor is essential. Even after your haemoglobin has returned to a normal value, it is recommended to continue iron medications in order to replenish levels.
