Hello and welcome to HCM,
Thank you for your query.
level of 5, indicates anemia
. The Ferro-f-tab has been prescribed to correct this. But in clinical practice a hemoglobin level of 5 would require blood transfusion
for proper correction.
Iron tablets do help, but usually take a long period of time and are mostly prescribed when there is border-line anemia.
I suggest you discuss the possibility of a blood transfusion with your medical care provider.
I hope I have succeeded in answering your questions, you could write back to us anytime for further clarifications.
