An observation which indicates that the hemoglobin concentration in a red blood cell specimen has fallen below a specified level.

  • Lead Poisoning
  • Excessive Blood loss during periods in women
  • Ulcers
  • Gastric Bleeding
  • Piles
  • Hemorrhoids
  • Gene Mutations

Hypochromasia Symptoms

As it is a cell disease so there could be many symptoms associated with it, such as:

Hypochromasia Treatment

There are different treatment options available according to the need. So, let’s discuss them one by one.

1. Iron Deficiency

2. Vitamin B6 Deficiency

To fulfill the deficiency of vitamin B6 one must take Vitamin B6 Cyanocobalamin. Some doctors also prescribe Epoetin beta-methoxy polyethylene glycol and Darbepoetin alfa. (2,3)

3. Parasitic Infection

When Hypochromasia is caused by the parasitic infections then you should go for a Homeopathic treatment called Cina, which is very effective in treating this.

4. Blood Loss

Excessive blood loss is also one of the causes of it and to treat this, Ferrum metallicum and Ferrum Phosphoricum should be taken.

These both medicines are very beneficial in the production of red blood cells and that’s how the deficiency of blood could be fulfilled.
