Hello Devri, Thank you for the question.


Anemia is a condition of a lack of hemoglobin levels in the blood. Each blood cell contains hemoglobin which functions to bind oxygen from the lungs which will be circulated throughout the body through blood vessels. Due to low hemoglobin levels, the supply of oxygen throughout the body can decrease. Anemia can be caused by:

less red blood cell production
destruction of excess or abnormal red blood cells
loss of blood cells, for example due to bleeding

Anemia can be distinguished based on the size of blood cells found during blood smear examination, one type is microcytic hypochromic anemia. Hypochromic microcytic anemia is a condition in which the hemoglobin concentration in red blood cells is less than normal and the shape of the red blood cells is smaller than normal. This condition can be caused by:

iron deficiency
thalassemia
sideroblastic anemia

To find out the next treatment, further blood tests are needed because the treatment for each of the conditions mentioned above is not the same. Whether or not this condition can be cured depends on the exact cause, for example, thalassemia cannot be cured because this blood disorder is related to a person's genetic disorder. Consumption of food will only affect anemia caused by iron deficiency. if it is caused by iron deficiency, the sufferer will be advised to consume iron sources such as eggs, spinach, nuts, lean meat, seafood. Iron supplements can also be given to people with iron deficiency anemia.


We recommend that you advise your friends to consult with an internal medicine specialist for further tests to determine the exact cause of this anemia so that further treatment can be given.


Hope this information is helpful.
