Child is anemic with low body temperature and supraventricular tachycardia attacks. Any thoughts?

My six year old son has looked very pale for the last couple of months. He also has dark circles around his eyes. We also just found out that he has Superventicular tachycardia attacks. Has had 2 sinusitis infections recently and is anemic. He also has been having low body temperatures. Is there something that could tie all of this together. He was born with the SVT when he was a baby and had the ablation surgery done but it appears that it has come back. I was just wanting to see what you thought because I m concerned about him.

Hi, Thanks for yourquery,
Treatments for children with anemia:
Specific treatment for anemia will be determined by your child's physician based on the following:
your child's age, overall health, and medical history
the extent of the anemia
the type of anemia
cause of the anemia
your child's tolerance for specific medications, procedures, or therapies
expectations for the course of the anemia
your opinion or preference
Anemia can be difficult to treat and may include:
vitamin and mineral supplements
change in your child's diet
medication and/or discontinuing causative medications
treatment of the causative disorder
surgery to remove spleen (if related to hemolytic anemia)
blood transfusions, if necessary (to replace significant loss)
antibiotics (if infection is causative agent)
bone marrow transplant (for aplastic anemia)
With Best Wishes, Regards , Dr. Sharmila
