Anemia

 

Complications

Being deficient in vitamins increases the risk of many health problems:

  • Birth defects. Lack of folate in pregnant women can lead to birth defects of the brain and spine. During pregnancy, the fetus needs supplemental folic acid to make healthy blood and nerve cells.

  • Nervous system disorders. While vitamin B-12 is important for the production of red blood cells, it's also important for a healthy nervous system. Untreated, vitamin B-12 deficiency can lead to neurologic problems, such as persistent tingling in your hands and feet known as peripheral neuropathy. It can lead to mental confusion and forgetfulness, because vitamin B-12 is also necessary for healthy brain function. Vitamin B-12 deficiency can cause these and other health problems before it leads to anemia.

  • Scurvy. Vitamin C deficiency can lead to scurvy. Signs and symptoms of this rare disease include bleeding under the skin and around the gums.

Treatment

Treatment of vitamin deficiency anemias is with supplements and changes in diet.

  • Folate deficiency anemia. Treatment involves eating a healthy diet and taking folic acid supplements as prescribed by your doctor. In almost all cases, folic acid supplements are taken orally every day. It usually takes a month or longer to correct folate deficiency anemia. If you're someone who can't absorb folate easily, you may need to take folic acid supplements for life.

  • Vitamin B-12 deficiency anemia (pernicious anemia). You can treat vitamin B-12 deficiency related to a poor diet with changes in your diet along with vitamin B-12 supplementation, under a doctor's supervision. If your body can't absorb vitamin B-12, you'll need lifelong injections of vitamin B-12. At first you'll need the shots, which you can administer yourself, daily. Eventually, you need them just once a month.

  • Vitamin C deficiency anemia. Treatment for this rare anemia is with vitamin C tablets. Take them as directed by your doctor. Additionally, increase your intake of foods and beverages that contain vitamin C.
