Blood Booster Medication?
What are the types of blood boosting drugs for pregnant women ??
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, I want to confirm beforehand, do you mean that you lack anemia or have a low hemoglobin? Have you done a blood test and your doctor or midwife has confirmed that you have anemia? If you have anemia, what kind of anemia do you have?
First of all you need to know in advance that in pregnant women, Hb is normally going to be lower than women who are not pregnant. This is because during pregnancy there is more fluid retention, the volume of blood will increase, the liquid component of blood will increase so that the Hb becomes lower because of the effects of hemodilution. If your Hb is indeed found to be lower than normal Hb for pregnant women (Hb less than 11 g / dl in first and third trimester pregnant women, less than 10.5 g / dL in second trimester pregnant women), then you can be said to have anemia .
The most common cause of anemia in pregnant women is iron deficiency anemia. Other common causes of anemia are folate deficiency anemia and B12 deficiency anemia. Iron deficiency anemia, folate deficiency, or B12 deficiency in pregnant women can be prevented by the consumption of pregnancy supplements (which generally already contain iron, folate, and B12 in sufficient amounts) regularly every day from the time of pregnancy planning until throughout pregnancy.
If anemia is found from a blood test, your obstetrician will further investigate the cause of the anemia and provide treatment according to your condition. For example, if your anemia is very severe, your doctor may plan to do a blood transfusion. If your anemia is classified as mild anemia, then your doctor can only provide supplementation of iron, folate, or additional B12 for you. It's best to consult with your obstetrician before you take certain medications or supplements while you are pregnant.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
