Hi.Welcome to HealthcareMagic. Constipation is theoretically caused by slow passage of digested food through the gut. Various reasons are responsible for constipation like iron supplements too. Tonoferon is an iron supplement and might be the reason. Give her a high fibre diet consult your doctor for laxatives. Do not use OTC laxatives. Take care

hello..‘Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum’.
yes the bodys immune system is unable to absorb the iron ..
fruits like oranges,strawberries, grapefruit, amla.. dried fruits like raisin n figs, Meat/fish/poultry also help in the iron absorption
for the constipation make her eat a banana n milk every day..
give her nux vomica 20 drops in water at night its a homeapathic medicine for acts as a laxative..
‘Wishing her Good Health’.

She is not taking anything so automatically her body is not getting proper adequate essential nutrients including iron. So she is anemic. She is having constipation problem. it is because as her appetite is less and not taking proper nutrition so due to less fibers she is getting constipation problem. So first treatment should be to increase her appetitie . children have warm infestation. so treatment of dewarmation is required. besides that if there is any systemic disorder then by any routine check up it can be find out. add more fibers rich foods should be given like fruits, vegetables, cereals. with iron supplement natural diet rich with iron should be given. spinach, broccoli, almonds, asparagus, carrot, are rich sourse of iron. sometimes iron suplement also cause constipation. so with iron supplement natural iron rich foods should be given. Must take sufficient water throgh out the day
Hope it will help Thank you
