What To Do If Your Child Has Anemia?

Q:
What to do if your child has anemia?

A:
Anemia is a relatively common disease that can happen to people of any age, including your child at birth or at young age. If it occurs to your child, mostly it is because your child lacks iron.

However, be very careful to take any actions to treat your child, since iron deficiency anemia is not something that can be self-treated or eased. Therefore, go to see your doctor before taking any medications. Changing diets on your own may result in iron overload, which might lead to other complications and damage your child’s liver.
