Sorry, can you please explain about the class of anti-anemia drugs, dosage, indications, contra indications, goals, side effects
Hello Sekarayudd, thank you for asking.
First, you must understand that there are many types of anemia. Broadly speaking, anemia is divided into hemolytic anemia and non-hemolytic andemia. In hemolytic anemia, bleeding occurs so that the amount of the body's blood volume decreases, or red blood cell damage occurs so rapidly that the number of red blood cells decreases dramatically. In non-hemolytic anemia, there is a disturbance in the formation of red blood cells or formation of imperfect red blood cells. Some conditions of anemia based on the cause are asalah:
bleeding anemia, for example due to accidents that cause bleeding out of wounds outside the body or injuries to internal organs.
anemia which causes damage to red blood cells such as in the incompatible rhesus disease of infants and mothers or in malaria.
iron deficiency anemia. The most common form of anemia that is understood by ordinary people. There is a lack of hemoglobin levels in red blood cells due to lack of iron.
anemia deficient in folic acid and vitamin B12. There are obstacles to the formation and maturation of red blood cells due to a deficiency of the two substances.
aplastic anemia. Generally an autoimmune disease in which a person's immune system attacks the body's cells.
anemia due to disorders of the bone marrow, for example in leukemia.
anemia due to chronic diseases, for example in chronic kidney failure.
anemia in congenital diseases, such as sickle cell anemia and thalassemia.
So, you must be more specific in mentioning the type of anemia that you want to clarify. You should consult with your doctor first to find out what type of anemia you have. The doctor will carry out routine blood tests or complete blood, and peripheral blood smears to see the shape and composition of blood cells. In general, several risk factors can increase the occurrence of anemia, such as lack of iron intake, folate, and B12, women in pregnancy, people with chronic pain, old age, menstruation, or other factors. The therapy you receive will certainly be tailored to your type of anemia. For example, your anemia is caused by microscopic bleeding in the digestive tract, so the consumption of additional iron will not significantly improve your anemia. You must remember that an overdose of iron will cause nausea, vomiting, bowel disorders, joint pain, headaches, to heart problems.
Hopefully this information is useful. Regards.
