Natural Treatment of Sideroblastic Anemia


Sideroblastic anemia is a medical term used for a group of blood disorders in which the bone marrow is not able to produce normal, healthy red blood cells. In people suffering from these blood disorders, the body is unable to produce sufficient amounts of hemoglobin – the protein in the red blood cells which carry oxygen in the blood – even though the body has enough iron. Sideroblastic anemia requires timely treatment because it can cause long-term health complications. The condition can be managed naturally with the help of some beneficial herbal products offered by Planet Ayurveda herbal manufacturing company.

Sideroblastic Anemia

Sideroblastic Anemia: Overview

Sideroblastic anemia refers to a group of blood disorders characterized by insufficient amounts of hemoglobin because the ability of the bone marrow to produce normal red blood cells is hampered. Insufficiency of hemoglobin hampers the delivery of oxygen throughout the body, and can, thereby, have an adverse impact on the functioning of vital internal organs like the brain, heart, and liver.

In people affected by Sideroblastic anemia, the iron inside red blood cells is not used adequately for producing hemoglobin, even despite normal amounts of iron in the body. The condition leads to the accumulation of iron in the red blood cells, giving a ringed appearance (sideroblast) to the nucleus of the cells. As such, the levels of iron and iron-containing substances in the blood serum of patients of Sideroblastic anemia are abnormally high.

Types of Sideroblastic Anemia

Sideroblastic anemia is of three types

1. Genetic (or Hereditary): which is linked to a mutated gene.

2. Acquired: which is linked to environmental factors or certain underlying health conditions

3. Idiopathic: which develops due to unknown reasons.

Sideroblastic anemia: Causes

The common causes of Sideroblastic anemia are:

  • Hereditary factors (especially mutations in the ALAS2, ABCB7, SCL19A2, GLRX5, and PSU1 genes)
  • Exposure to drugs (like anti-tuberculous agents, antibiotics, etc.)
  • Exposure to toxins
  • Nutritional deficiencies (particularly Vitamin B6 and copper)
  • Overdose of zinc
  • Lead poisoning
  • Use of Alcohol

Sideroblastic anemia: Symptoms

The symptoms of Sideroblastic anemia can range from mild to severe. The most recognizable symptoms of the condition are:

  • Fatigue
  • Weakness
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Pale skin of hands and arms
  • Headaches
  • Heart palpitations
  • Angina-like chest pain
  • Rapid heart rate (Tachycardia)
  • Enlargement of spleen (Splenomegaly)
  • Enlargement of the liver (Hepatomegaly)

In severe cases, Sideroblastic anemia can lead to acute leukemia. In addition, the elevated iron levels in the blood can cause heart diseases, kidney failure, or liver damage.

Sideroblastic anemia: Treatment

The treatment of Sideroblastic anemia depends on the severity of the condition in affected patients. Some of the treatment methods are medications, Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) therapy, and Blood transfusion. In some rare cases, the patients of Sideroblastic anemia may have to undergo Bone marrow transplantation surgery.

Sideroblastic anemia can be managed effectively with the help of Ayurvedic products which are prepared from natural components that have proven properties to treat blood disorders. Some beneficial herbal products are offered by Planet Ayurveda for managing the condition naturally. The products are:
