    Anaemia Treatment in Bangalore

    A person suffering from anaemia does not have enough healthy Red Blood Cells (RBCs) or Haemoglobin to carry & transport oxygen throughout the body. Our body does not have the right amount of oxygenated blood if we are suffering from a condition called anaemia. One can feel tired or weakened when enough oxygen is not present in the blood. Additionally, headaches, nausea, or shortness of breath can occur.

    The term anaemia refers to a variety of mild or severe conditions, and the causes can differ for every condition. Anaemia can also be a chronic condition meaning that the illness will persist for a long period of time and may never completely disappear. Moreover, the presence of anaemia can be a warning sign of a more serious illness.


    A person’s anaemia symptoms depend on the cause and the severity of their current medical condition. Anaemia symptoms can be masked by the symptoms of another illness causing it. In this case, another condition might be tested for in order to identify the anaemia.

    Some very common symptoms of anaemia include:

    • Tiredness, Dizziness, and Chest pain.
    • Iron-deficiency headaches may result from anaemia with low haemoglobin.
    • An irregular or fast heartbeat.
    • Shortness of breath.
    • Pale or yellowish skin.
    • Dizziness or lightheadedness.
    • Cold hands and feet.
    • Pounding or “whooshing” sound in the ear.


    There are several causes of different forms of anaemia. They might consist of the following:

    • Iron deficiency anaemia – Anaemia is caused by a shortage of iron. Those who are pregnant and don’t take iron supplements can develop this type of anaemia. It can also be triggered by blood loss.
    • Vitamin deficiency anaemia – To produce enough healthy red blood cells, the body also needs folate and Vitamin B12 in addition to iron. A lack of these and other essential nutrients in the diet might prevent the body from producing enough red blood cells. A few people also have trouble absorbing vitamin B12. This can result in pernicious anaemia, commonly known as Vitamin-deficient anaemia.
    • Aplastic anaemia – When the body doesn’t produce enough brand-new blood cells, a rare, life-threatening anaemia develops. Aplastic anaemia can be brought on by autoimmune diseases, certain medications, infections, and exposure to harmful substances.
    • Anaemia of bone marrow disease – Blood production in the bone marrow can be impacted by diseases including Leukaemia and Myelofibrosis. These disorders can have effects that are minor or potentially fatal.
    • Sickle cell anaemia – This genetic and possibly fatal illness is a kind of Hemolytic Anaemia. An abnormal form of haemoglobin causes red blood cells to form a sickle shape. These abnormal blood cells die faster. This results in a persistent scarcity of red blood cells.


    The doctor will ask questions regarding the symptoms. Because anaemia occurs when you do not have enough healthy red blood cells, blood tests will be performed to check on the RBC count. In order to diagnose anaemia and determine its underlying cause and ensure that every patient receives the best care possible, Apollo Hospitals, Karnataka, provides a full variety of tests. The following tests are used to identify anaemia:

    • Blood Test – Complete blood count to determine the blood’s haemoglobin level and to display the size and form of RBCs.
    • Bone marrow biopsy – Rarely is a bone marrow test necessary, and only a medical expert will perform one.
    • Urine Test – To find blood in the urine, perform a urine test.


    Anaemia treatment is based on the underlying cause and degree of this medical condition. Our skilled haematologists at Apollo Hospitals, Karnataka, will create a custom treatment plan whenever anaemia is identified that best suits the patients’ requirements. The available treatment alternatives are:

    Dietary Supplements – The doctor may prescribe the following for mild to moderate anaemia:

    • Iron supplements
    • Vitamin B12 or Folate supplements

    Medications – The doctor may recommend medications to help bone marrow produce more red blood cells. If anaemia is caused by an autoimmune condition, the patient may require immunosuppressive medications.

    Blood Transfusions – Blood transfusions are common, safe medical procedures where healthy blood is administered through Intravenous (IV) lines inserted into blood vessels.

    Bone Marrow Transplants – Hematopoietic stem cell transplants, also known as Bone Marrow Transplants, provide healthy blood-forming cells in place of defective ones.

    Surgery – For internal bleeding to stop, surgery might be required.

    Risk Factors

    Anaemia can be worsened by the following factors:

    • A diet which is lacking in a certain vitamin or mineral
    • Small Intestine complications
    • Having been diagnosed with a chronic illness, such as diabetes, cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, heart failure, or liver disease
    • Heavy Menstrual period
    • Pregnancy
    • Family Background
    • People above the age of 65
    • Being prematurely born


    The underlying cause and patient’s response to treatment determine the prognosis for anaemia over the long run. Although anaemia can have dangerous side effects if left untreated, it is frequently relatively curable. The probability of the patient recovering from anaemia brought on by an iron or vitamin shortage is often favourable if the patient receives a quick supply of these essential nutrients.

    It’s critical to monitor the diet to make sure the patient is consuming the required daily quantities of Iron, Folate, and Vitamin B12. Consult the doctor to learn more about what to expect in specific circumstances.
