Treatments for Anemia

Author GreatDad Writers
Submitted 22-01-2007

Treatment for anemia depends on its cause. So it’s important for fathers not to assume that any symptoms your children may be having are due to iron deficiency. Be sure to have your children checked by a doctor.


If your children do have iron deficiency anemia, the doctor may prescribe medication as drops (for infants) or as a liquid or tablet (for older children), and also may recommend adding certain iron-rich foods to your children’s diet.


If your teenage daughter is anemic and has heavy or irregular menstrual periods, in some cases her doctor may prescribe a birth control pill to help regulate the bleeding.


Folic acid and vitamin B12 supplements may be prescribed if the anemia is traced to a deficiency of these nutrients, although this is rare in children.
