Anemia, also called anemia, is a disease in which there is a decrease in hemoglobin. As a consequence, the oxygen supply of tissues deteriorates. At some kinds of anemias, the level of erythrocytes also decreases. There are acute and chronic, acquired or congenital forms of the disease.
Hemoglobin is found in red blood cells (red blood cells) and is an oxygen carrier to all organs and tissues of the body. With its deficiency, cells begin to experience oxygen starvation, which negatively affects the working capacity of the body.
Medications are taken as prescribed by the doctor and under his supervision. The choice is strictly individual and depends on many factors:
- iron medication: actinferrin, prolonged gout, haemophor, ferrogradumet, ferronal, heferol;
- vitamins: cyanocabamine, folic acid;
- combined drugs: vitrium-prenatal forte, sorbifer durules, ferretab comp, ferro-folgamma.
They differ from each other in speed, completeness of absorption and frequency of development of side effects. Combined preparations are used to increase the effectiveness of treatment. In addition to iron, they contain substances that enhance its absorption, for example, amino acids and ascorbic acid. Many remedies have a lasting effect. The release of iron from them is slow, which reduces the chance of side effects.
