How To Maintain The Child’s Hemoglobin Remains Normal?
, my 1-year-old child was blood transfused because of low HB. Finally, the check is down to 10.6 hb. The doctor said it’s still normal. But how do you make it so that the HB is stable. Because my child sometimes looks pale
Hello Mrs. Rina! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Children who look pale and have low levels of hemoglobin (Hb) certainly make parents worried, especially children to ever need a transfusion. Hb levels are an indication of the number of red blood cells in the body. The cause of anemia (low Hb level) needs to be investigated more deeply if the child does indeed look pale. This is very important because red blood cells are needed to transport nutrients and oxygen. If the amount is lacking, nutrients and oxygen cannot be delivered properly to the organs of the body, including the brain. In fact, at his age, brain development is happening very rapidly. Mothers should bring their children to see a pediatrician at the hospital with more complete facilities. Tell the doctor that the child often looks pale and has even received a transfusion. Your pediatrician will find out the cause of anemia in your child, so that treatment for your child is not only to increase the Hb, but also to overcome the cause of the decrease in Hb. In addition, you can try to provide foods high in iron for your child at home, such as beef liver, beef, dark green vegetables, and beans.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
