Treatments for Pernicious anemia

Treatments for Pernicious anemia:

The first step in the treatment of pernicious anemia is prevention. Many types of pernicious anemias cannot be prevented. However, it is important to eat a diet that includes a sufficient amount of vitamin B12. Vitamin B12 found in lean red meats, poultry, fish, and dairy products, such as milk, cheese and yogurt. Taking supplements that contain vitamin B12 may also be needed to prevent pernicious anemia, especially for people at a high risk for developing the condition, such as vegetarians and women who are pregnant or breast feeding.

If diagnosed and treated promptly, pernicious anemia has a good prognosis and the risk of serious permanent complications, such as dementia and memory loss, can be minimized.

Treatment of pernicious anemia generally includes monthly injections of vitamin B12. Some people may also need to take oral supplements and/or more frequent injections. Vitamin B12 may also be given through a nasal spray. Some people may need life-long treatment.

Regular medical care and monitoring of the condition and treatment of any underlying diseases, such as celiac disease or Crohn's disease, are also necessary to ensure a good prognosis.
