Anemia is the most common disease which affects kids. It is generally caused due to the deficiency of red blood cells in human blood. Red blood cells are an important component in blood because they contain Hemoglobin. Hemoglobin’s main function is to carry oxygen to the various tissues in our body. In Ayurveda, anemia is known as Pandu Rogum. 

Signs and Symptoms:

A child suffering from anemia will look pale.  There is decreased pinkness on the lips and the nail beds. These changes may happen gradually, though these symptoms are difficult to notice initially. Other common signs include: Irritability, fatigue, dizziness, light-headedness and rapid heart beat..

If the anemia is caused by excessive destruction of red blood cells, symptoms include jaundice, yellowing of the white region of the eyes, an enlarged spleen and dark tea-colored urine. In infants and preschoolers, iron deficiency related anemia can result in developmental delays and behavioural distur- bances, such as decreased motor activities and problems with social interaction and attention to tasks. Research indicates that developmental problems may last into and beyond school age if the iron deficiency is not properly treated.
