Suggest ways to give up eating slate pencils
Most likely due to anaemia.
Thank you for asking HCM
I have gone through your query. Haemoglobin of 8.5 is anaemia. You are getting temptation to eat slate pencils due to anaemia.
Taking iron , b12 and folic acid supplements will be helpful to clear this. Once anaemia recovers you will decease the tendency for eating pencils.
You can take iron supplements like dexorange syrup or capsules. Taking vitamin C along with it enhances absorption. You can take 100mg vitamin C daily.
You should also do deworming by taking anti helminthics like Albendazole as a single dose.
Let me know if anything not clear.
i am happy to help you.
