Treated for colon tuberculosis. Have low haemoglobin. How to raise haemoglobin level. What precaution to be taken?

My uncle is suffering from colon Tubeculosis which was treated since one year and found completely healed. But still his Hb % is as low as 6.5 and with much effort it could not be raised to the normal level. Please suggest the course of action to raise the hemoglobin level and the required precautions to be taken for the patient.

Hi and welcome to HCM,thank you for your query.
You should find the exact cause of low hemoglobine first and then the right treatment can be started. So you need to check your iron and feritine levels and hemoglobine volumes to see is there problem in iron or this is hemolytic anemia. Also B12 vitamin may be insuffcient. You can try with general methods by taking iron,b12 supplements but as I said it would be smarter to establish the right casue first.

Wish you good health. Regards.0
